Moving from iGoogle to Start.io for my Internet Dashboard

In a time of information overload, less is more is an appealing mantra. So when I heard about start.io on net@night, my interest was immediately piqued. It took me about 10 minutes to setup my dashboard. So far, I find it to be a fantastic, minimalist dashboard.

Without formal testing, it seems that iGoogle begins to drain resources over time causing FireFox to explode after several hours. Usually, when I end my day, I leave FireFox open, with only iGoogle running. Too often I awake to a crashed FireFox. :(

So far (after three days) this problem has not happened with start.io.

I do miss having the weather widget and the world clock, but now I just use weather.com and http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock

What do you use as your Internet dashboard?

  1. Might I strongly suggest Google Chrome, a web browser all but completely integrated with everything Google …

  2. As a mac user, I am always relying on my apple widgets. Whether its on my iMac, Macbook Pro, or Ipod, my widgets are always with me!!!

  3. Hey we are building another solution to the same problem.
    Can we send you an invite to our beta next week?
