I think what igoogle has done is a disgrace. Its ridiculous a company such as this with as many users can close its doors. I used Igoogle all the time until I heard of its closure. I have tried a few more alternatives such as iGHome and many more but I have come around full circle as I don't think any of these will ever give the depth of widgets that igoogle gave. Until the likes of Apple or similar bring a product out that can guarantee a huge amount of widgets I am keeping things simple. I am now using yourport.com as my homepage. It took a day or so to get used to it not having all the widgets but after a while I felt blessed that all that clutter and information was not there. Instead I created a page with links to all this information so when I need to know it I can get it in one click. So, until a better alternative arrives I am keeping with my new find. yourport.com

Might want to take a look at a MoDomhan. It's still in development, but they have a promo video to tell you what it does.

Your link for uStart tries to bring up a webpage which my AV software blocks with a trojan warning. Should the link actually be ustart(dot)org?

Have you tried yourport.com It combines the simplity of myfav.es but it is as in depth as allmyfaves

You forgot "My Yahoo" which is very similar to iGoogle, I transferred most of my widgets URL'S too, without a hitch. For Yahoo's widget selection not nearly as expansive. Now it's my new Homepage and surprisingly, I like it! iGoogle who? I use Netvibes for my reader and in my opinion the best reader.

iGoogle's mobile version will be retired on July 31st, 2012 like you said, but the web version won't be shutting down this November.

According to Google's support page it will be shut down November 1st, 2013.

I'm not allowed to link the site address so you'll have to take my word for it. :)

I'm so disgusted with the demise of iGoogle that it's coloring my reaction to all Google products and services. Why axe something that people like and use? Is iGoogle expensive to maintain? I doubt it.
Trust is an important commodity. Tough to earn, easy to lose.
