Sometime in June I was reading an article somewhere, it might have been Lifehacker and it mentioned Google’s new iGoogle.
It’s currently running in a sandbox, which means if you use it, nothing bad can happen to your stuff. If you know anything about facebook applications, just think iGoogle with them. Basically, there are some APIs that will give developers the ability to make canvases (like an application on facebook) and build it into the iGoogle page without distributing anyone else’s canvas. This gives a lot of flexibility, you don’t bother anyone too. I’m not really sure on any of the specifics yet, although it could be a good way to spread the (fluff)Grabber, potentially.
The Google Code Blog introduces the new iGoogle sandbox and also links you to the new iGoogle Sandbox Blog.
To get the iGoogle sandbox page for yourself, you simply follow the instructions on the iGoogle Sandbox Signup page (they don’t stop you from doing more than once either) and to get out of the sandbox once you have had enough, simply go to the same place.
