Google Killing Off iGoogle

The latest casualty in Google’s ongoing wave of product closures: iGoogle. Google has announced that it will shut down the customised home page option on November 1, 2013.

Given Google’s ongoing efforts to convince everyone to use Google+, I’m not surprised that it wants to shut down an option which lets you change the way Google looks. And I suspect not too many people will care about this: there are plenty of other ways to set up your own customised start page if that’s what you want.

Google is also killing off some other minor products, including its specific search app for Symbian phones and its Google Mini search appliance.
