    Holy ****.. It is now http://www.google.com/ig

    It was www.google.com..

    It is, however, too bad that the google word of the day is the same as dictionary.com's. I wanted two different words!

    about:blank here too. Although google.com/ig does look good.

    Holy cow, you've opened my eyes. It was just plain old www.google.com. This is a revelation. I can even get my email on this.

    My homepage is and will remain my personal portal (it's database driven, so I can add links to it on the fly), but I will ensure that my first link on that page is now going to be http://www.google.com/ig

    You'll have to scroll down to see all it contains.

    Except that it delivers the content to you, as opposed to you having to go hunt for it, and it has a google search at the bottom. Honestly, I don't use most of the things, for instance, I never go to movies :frown: so the link to current movies playing near me is not something I use. But if you have a life, this delivers a lot of current information and commonly used sites to your fingertips.

    Well, google.com/ig can put all of that onto it, but you can chose exactly what you want, where you want it(you can move it around the page O.O )

    So if you dont want the movies, you don't have to have it...

    I actually just changed it to Google IG :!!) a few hours ago, before reading this.
    Previously it was livepage.apple.com :!!) here, but at home it was mail.google.com :!!)
