NetVibes

January 8, 2006

Since I discovered it, I have had my homepage set to My Google. I have also begun to use Google Reader to keep up with all the blogs I like to read. However, today, I have discovered Netvibes. Netvibes is similar page written in AJAX. I have used it to add all sorts of content. I has the ability to keep me up to date on my Gmail account as well as numerous other forms of content. You can add just about anything you want, as long as it has an RSS, XML, or RDF type feed (more sites have this than you realize). I am fairly sure that I will be converting completely in the next few days. I am a Google advocate, but I think that sometimes they try to work on too many things at once.

    I just learned about SiteJot and was considering using it for Favorites. Can I use NetVibes for this or should I just put a link to SiteJot on NetVibes and switch to it?

    What probably exists is a bookmark manager that will work in RSS. To illustrate, once you found a site that you wanted to bookmark, you could right-click it and have some sort of option to add it to your feed. Then, in your RSS reader (in this case, Netvibes), you simply have a feed set up to pull your bookmarks. The problem with Netvibes is that it limits the results pulled from a feed on your homepage to 10, so you would have to click the feed to see the list of bookmarks. Your list could grow indefinitely and transfer to any computer/browser you used.
