  1. Just use iGoogle.
  2. I quite like it by the way!!! But yes there's a delay in getting the options on the top!
  3. I honestly am indifferent to the change - I don't care either way.
  4. All you need from google.com is the text field and the two buttons. But with Firefox, who needs google.com, fade in, fade out, sweep and all those!
  5. i like it, remember, the reason that google is still #1 is because it started simple and stayed simple, it knows that every time you search ur not interested in seeing all of the days news, or some background image that takes 15seconds to load on dialup, you just want to see the space to type and the search button,

    And they have iGoogle for those that do want extra stuff.

    You can customize it like crazy. It easily replaces those hubs like Yahoo and MSN because you control the content, theme, arrangement, etc...
  7. I do have a soft corner for Yahoo. I love it too! :)
    Maybe coz i had my first e-mail id was with Yahoo!
  8. It's a bit annoying because I always liked the clean, unadultered Google home page but it's not going to stop me using it. What will stop me using Google is Bing once it actually produces results that are somewhat comparable to the superior results from Google.
  9. Well Bing is still in its Beta stages isn't it?
  10. Beta these days doesn't have much meaning. Gmail was in beta for 5 years. Maybe that's just Google though...
  11. Well I personally like it. Google was always about simplicity, and with this fade-in background, they make the user focus more on the search box. The necessary links such as About, Advertising Solutions, etc. become less prominent, but still accessible.
  12. This topic has been moved from the section CPU & Components to section Applications by R_manic
  13. Like cjl I am indifferent also, except that I use Google for my homepage and used to access my Gmail from the link on the page.

    Because I am impatient I just created a Gmail thumbnail page in Opera and don't use my homepage to get there now.
