Tabs on Personalized Homepages

Last night I was using the Google personalized homepage, where I have some newsfeeds, and noticed that there was a new “add a tab” function. This duplicates the MyYahoo “add page” capability. Barry Schwartz has some screen captures.

This identical feature also exists on Live.com. In fact, Live.com and Google’s PH pages very closely resemble each other.

    You might also be interested in a brand new start page available called Funky Homepage. It’s comprised mainly of Google gadgets (as well as Gadgets from other sources), live news feeds, daily Bushisms, daily jokes, horoscopes, videos, weather (up to 5 locations), interactive calendar, Google calendar viewer (for up to 5 Google calendars), comic strips and lots more besides. It also lets you choose your own search engine, colour scheme, etc.

    Unlike many of the other personalised start pages available, there’s no need to create an account and it’s all already set up for you, with the most popular gadgets organised by category and sub-category. So there’s virtually no setting-up work required by the user. More advanced users can choose to add their own Google gadgets and RSS feeds, but most people just use the gadgets and tools provided.

    It’s free to use and you can check it out at http://www.funkyhomepage.com
