Google’s latest product bloodbath includes underused or obsolete products you probably don’t need. Amongst the latest fatalities is iGoogle, which will die on November 1. What is iGoogle, and who uses it? To be honest a couple of us had to look it up.
Launched in 2005, iGoogle is a personalised homepage that allows you to compile RSS feeds, sports scores, stock prices and whatever else you want onto a page that would presumably load each time you open your browser. Useful… about a decade ago. That’s probably why nobody talks about it. Had you heard of iGoogle before Google just decided to kill it? [Google Blog]
