iGoogle LogoIn July, Google announced they are shutting down iGoogle. We still have over a year away until that actually happens on November 1, 2013 but Google wants you all to be prepared.

Jessica from Google started and pinned a thread in the Google Web Search Help thread aimed at having iGoogle users discuss alternatives for iGoogle. She wrote:

It's come to our attention that some folks have been wanting to discuss alternatives to iGoogle. This is a thread exclusively for people to exchange ideas and experiences about the alternatives. Know that any off-topic posts will deleted, so if you wish to discuss any other aspect of iGoogle, please search the forum for the most appropriate thread and make your post there.

Thanks and have fun swapping ideas!

So go discuss? What do I think is a good alternative? I have no idea, I never really used iGoogle. But a website named SaveiGoogle.org has a list of alternatives over here. They have identified 88 of which 24 were evaluated, 18 were eliminated and 46 evaluations are pending. They hope to finish their exploration by the end of this year.

Forum discussion at Google Web Search Help.
