igHome tries to emulate and restore as much as possible of the old functionality and design of iGoogle (retired by Google in 2013).
The website is a bit slow. Once you remove some of the default widgets and news feeds, it accelerates a bit.
There are a huge banner and a few lines of clutter on the bottom of the screen, other than that it’s mostly clean.
Edit processes are unnecessarily long and annoying. Adding widgets takes a long time, and even removing them takes too long (page has to be refreshed). Organizing bookmarks is impossible: can’t drag them or create categories. For a start page, I find this to be a big problem; The bookmarks auto-sort alphabetically. The color choices for most widgets are terrible and inconsistent, and the design is quite poor.
