Google Launches Personal Portal Page

Breaking: Google Launching Personal Portal Page – Gizmodo

An interesting (if predictable) move from Google.


I’ve set it up, and it’s pretty useful, if a little basic. Go check it out if portals are your thing, or if you’re a Google fanboy that always has to play with their newest toys, like I am.

Now, Google, how about the ability to add a box linked to an RSS feed of my choosing? That would make this about a million times more useful. Looks like “the ability to add any standardized feed” will be coming “very soon.”

  1. I like it! I haven’t really used a portal in years, but this could work for me. I just wish that you could use Google Suggest instead of the normal Google search engine.

    Ya, I completely agree. For the last year or so I’ve been using Google Suggest and I would really prefer to use it on a “personalized page” but Google doesn’t offer that feature. So I searched and searched for a widget. Of course, there are none.

    I’m sure there is someone out there who prefers google suggest and has come up with a way to do this. They should advertise somewhere a little more popular.

    So I’m just wait for something simple and obvious to be created. One day someone will get it.
