Organizing?- alt. choice for Google home page ? Sign In/Join

I have used Google home page for years, and now need to find a good substitute (they are shutting it down in a month). I currently like having the weather, current news, my email additions and other choices come up with my Home Page.

Does anyone here have a great home page organizer to look into? Thanks!

It is iGoogle that is being shut down, not plain Google. I've got to find another one, too. I've seen that notice for well over a year now, but suddenly its here! I have things on the home page, but now that I think about it, I don't really pay a lot of attention to them, so I obviously don't need them.

I don't really have recommendations as I just use a search engine as my home page, right now goggle. But I see what you want on MSN and Yahoo and on my local provider home page. But I suppose you already know that. Smile

Yes, thanks for suggesting it. I am still looking at some others too. Just wondering if anyone had any negative experience (as well as positive) with any of them too?

I do tend to be a creature of habit and when I get used to a page and it's look....I tend to try to find something similar. But there is always change when one deals with computers, their programs/pages (or phones, for that matter)Wink

I've never heard of igoogle home. I use AOL as my home page though I can't get to the message boards any longer on AOL so use AOL through Mozilla Firefox. Of course, tonight I could not get to the boards using that either so had to go to google chrome.

See, I am no help here except to offer AOL as a choice. One thing I cannot stand is web-based email so I always use the regular AOL browser for email, then switch over to Mozilla for most of my online activities.
