Today google added a tiny yellow alert box to iGoogle with a link to a tour of new features. Yes, new great amazing features.
They even go so far as to show some Gmail gadget screen shots. They don’t bother to tell you about the problem links, super reduced functionality or how many more clicks it takes to get to the reguluar inbox to just interact with mail normally.
Google Reader also will always be better than anything they can ever put on the iGoogle page because iGoogle just will never have enough room and enough time (speed) for users.
Google, stop messing up people’s start pages and it faster and better, not slower and more clumsy.
