Google’s decision to retire iGoogle is the worst business decision they could possibly make.
iGoogle was created to kill off the personalised Yahoo page, and as it was a major improvement over its competitor, I jumped on board. The best part of iGoogle is the ability to have a home page of bookmarks and other personalised settings that can be accessed from any browser on any computer, anywhere in the world.
Integrating its features into Chrome will not replicate the principle advantage that iGoogle currently presents.
Would including Google Ads on iGoogle present the revenue stream required to keep this service in operation? Hopefully.
Otherwise I’m heading back to Yahoo, and Google lose a customer.
