Mobile iGoogle Is Already Dead

When Google controversially decided to kill off its customisable iGoogle home page, it at least gave enthusiastic users of the site up until November 2013 until to get used to the change. However, that isn’t the case for the mobile version, which got switched off on July 31 this year.

Google Operating System notes the change, and points out that even the desktop version won’t work on most mobile browsers unless you tweak the browser to present a different user agent. I suspect people who find iGoogle convenient would be daunted by that task. We’ve highlighted some good alternatives to iGoogle, and people currently using it will need to migrate. As we’ve pointed out before, petitions and the like won’t make any difference.
