Hi everybody

I have received a lot of mails with questions about the future of my stock gadget, since Google announced that iGoogle is being deprecated.

I have been quite quiet since then, as I had to consider if I wanted to continue the gadget on another platform or simply let it "die" together with iGoogle.

I have considered the following options:
  • Netvibes
  • smartphone app(android/iphone)
  • Chrome extension
  • Run on homepage

My choice has been converting/rewriting the gadget to a netvibes widget. Netvibes has very simular functionality like iGoogle, but it is really missing a configurable stock gadget.

The primary Netvibes widget Pros are:
  • Can run on netvibes(of course)
  • Will run on your own homepage as well very easily.
  • Adapts nicely to mobile browsers
  • Can be used as a vista/win7 gadget on your desktop.

I will, if the demand is big enough, make an export/import function so iGoogle preferences can be imported into the new netvibes widget.

Please participate in the poll to let me know your opinon.
