I’ve been using iGoogle as my home page for at least a year, probably longer. I love it, even though it’s a little cluttery, it helps me stay on top of things. Google is pretty much the next best thing next to Jesus. My Google home page has these plugins:

  1. Gmail – the best email application ever invented
  2. CNN.com – up to date news
  3. Vitalist Gadget – my to do lists
  4. Google Reader – gotta get my blogs on
  5. Picasa Web Photos – shows my online collection of photos
  6. Google Calendar – I don’t use this enough, but I am learning
  7. Nasa Image of the Day – awesome space photos
  8. Better Bookmarks – this is for when I open my Google homepage on someone else’s computer
  9. Digg – I check it every once in a while
  10. Weather – or I could just go outside
  11. Clicky Quicky – keep tabs on my blog stats
  12. Countdown – right now it’s counting down to Jen’s birthday
  13. Date & Time – just in case I don’t want to look at the tool bar on my Macbook Pro
  14. Christian Today – this has interesting links every so often

What does your homepage look like?
