iGoogle Shuts Down
After shutting down Google Reader back in July, it seems Google has pulled the switch on yet another one of its services as after 8 months of the announcement, Google has finally shut down iGoogle. However, this time there was no grand farewell, or even a blog post by Google about it, but they simply shut it down, and the iGoogle URL now redirects you to Google’s search page.
While it wasn’t nearly as popular as Google’s RSS Reader, it was used by quite a few people as a personal web portal, where all your data and information was out together in a categorical and collective way.
Perhaps iGoogle never took off as Google wanted it to, or it was simply not on their future road map, either way, they decided that this was for the best.
If you had important information data on iGoogle, or are looking for alternatives to it, head over to the Google support page for iGoogle for more details.
