What's happening to iGoogle?
What's happening to iGoogle? - Web Search Help

iGoogle will be retired in 16 months, on November 1, 2013. The mobile version will be retired on July 31, 2012.

How did you come to this decision?
We originally launched iGoogle in 2005 before anyone could fully imagine the ways that today's web and mobile apps would put personalized, real-time information at your fingertips. With modern apps that run on platforms like Chrome and Android, the need for something like iGoogle has eroded over time, so we’ll be winding down iGoogle on November 1, 2013, giving you a full 16 months to adjust or easily export your iGoogle data.

Meh. I used to use it a lot, but to be honest, in the past six monthes, I forgot it even existed. It's true that I got all my iGoogle related info from my phone...

iGoogle has been my home page for years. I will miss it when it shuts down.
