I switched to iGoogle as a home page many years ago and have been using it every day and indeed every time I hit the web ever since.
Before that I had a Yahoo! page that I had various news and science widgets installed on.
Recently I've been looking for an alternative to my iGoogle page and logged in to my old Yahoo! one to find settings from a decade ago still there and still usable. It was like coming home to the farm and finding Old-Yeller romping down the drive to meet me.
Goodbye Google. Hello old friend...
