Google announced on Tuesday that it will retire the customizable homepage site “iGoogle” on November 1, 2013. “We originally launched iGoogle in 2005 before anyone could fully imagine the ways that today’s web and mobile apps would put personalized, real-time information at your fingertips,” Google said in a blog post. “With modern apps that run on platforms like Chrome and Android, the need for iGoogle has eroded over time, so we’ll be winding it down. Users will have 16 months to adjust or export their data.” We’ve always loved the customization options that iGoogle offers but, truthfully, we don’t use it that much anymore and can see Google’s point. The company also said that it’s killing off Google Mini, Google Talk Chatback, Google Video and its Symbian Search application.
