Straight Angle™: I am Loving It !!!

I am Loving It !!! 

For a Google freak (with a big "F") like me, it is just getting better. Google has launched a personalized site(jus like the My Yahoo!!) page...God I don't even want to compare Google with Yahoo!...It's plain simple....plain and simple...Google never competes with Yahoo!. It’s in a completely different plane altogether. Just have a search on Yahoo! and see the results for yourselves. The difference in the feel of it, says it all. Slashdot reports the personalized service and needless to say, I had already made that my home page...It is superb...I am loving it. With options to put out my Gmail and Slashdot in the front page and also to have a preview of the last 9 posts/messages in the page, Google is rocking.
The one stuff that Google has yet to take care of is, its group’s page. With all adoration to Google, when compared with other offerings in the market (a euphemism for Yahoo! Groups pages), it is still in its infancy, when it comes to the user interface and the ease of the members and moderators to operate it. I wish Google looks into that as soon as possible.

You are right, even I have changed my home page to Google's Personalized site. Any idea why they choose Slashdot? Also there is not much customisation now, whihc I'm sure will change pretty soon.

I have also noticed a couple of times that your web pages open with a lot of javascript errors and sometimes crashes my browser. I guess due to this I enter your site very cautiosly ;-)

Other than that life is cool.

@Arun: Thanx for the caution..even I have noticed that sometimes and I have removed alomost all the Java scripts from my page...now there are very few Java scripts(only those absolutely necessary)..BTW, iam still confused on whether Firefox crashes with Java Script!!..BTW, the reason they chose Slashdot might be more for peer review and critic before going all hog...may be they want to test it with nerds(like us!!!) first and then go open...also, they might want to give an image of "hi-tech"ness to the entire stuff...all these are probablities..there might be more too..what do ya think??
@Saranyan: Welcome to the club!!

If ur using ur login(account) in the computer, only then it opens the personalised page. If it is in other's login, then it is not opening my page...it opens jus the normal Google page only..
