While it lost to iGoogle in our best start page showdown, Netvibes remains a popular platform due to its serious customisation powers. With its newest feature, multiple personalised pages, it overtakes the competition as the feed addicts' platform of choice.
Webapp Orchestr8 creates widgets for your iGoogle, Netvibes, and Pageflakes start page—or to embed on a web site—from any web page with a simple point-and-click. Similar to the new web clip feature in Leopard (which does the same thing but puts the widget in Dashboard), just point Orchestr8 to the page containing the content you want to clip, find the content you want, click it, and the select Grab it. It's not perfect, but it does offer a simple way to create widgets for your start page for content that doesn't offer an easy-to-snag RSS feed.
Customisable homepage Netvibes has started making its widgets available on a multitude of both online and desktop environments—Windows Vista, iGoogle, the Apple Dashboard and the Opera browser, to name a few. About 1,000 of the roughly 90,000 Netvibes widgets(!) are cross-platform at the moment, with more to come.
