    Google Customizable Homepage

    Anybody else try this out?

    Maybe I'm just a little behind the ball, but I didn't notice this feature until a few days ago. It's really cool. If you go to google.com, you can click on the top where it says something to the effect of customize this page, add whatever content you want, and then select google.com as your browser's homepage. You can add headlines from whichever news source you prefer, local weather, sports -- whatever you want. I love this, now I can just open up my browser and see everything I need without having to make my usual rounds to the usual websites. If you have gmail, you can add that too and it'll display your recent messages.
