Just a couple of days ago Google officially announced that its service iGoogle is shutting down and will not be available after November 1, 2013. I was really shocked by this sudden decision to take down a great utility such as iGoogle. I use it a lot in my browser and I know many of you do too but I guess this is something we have to always be prepared for when using web 2.0 technologies. Some tools have a long life span and others a short one.
Fortunetaly enough, and as Google said about iGoogle that it has outlived its usefulness with the new apps and technologies that are now available, there are several other awesome alternatives to iGoogle that we can use to manage and organize our links and resources. Check out the list below :
This is my favourite. It is a customizable start page where you can save and organize websites you visit so often. It has a nice interface and is very easy to use.
Skloog is like a visual pinboard where users save their favourite bookmarks and create start pages by simply clicking on their logo.Users can add websites to their Skyloog page by entering the URL of that website or select some from the ones already indexed by Skloog.
This is another great tool for bookmarking and curating content. It allows users to create text, photo and audio notes that auto-synchronize across different platforms. Users can also easily access and share files of different formats, read The Utimate Guide to The Use of Evernote in Education to learn more.
This is a dashboard where you can add and organize your links and RSS feeds. It provides various layouts to choose from.
This one looks like NetVibes but has some different features. It lets you create your own customzable page where you can add widgets, create tabs, and select themes to fit your desires.
