iGoogle LogoAs you know, Google is killing off iGoogle and iGoogle users are not happy about it. The number of complaints is outrageous.

So Google's Conrad L. posted a message to iGoogle users last night to try to be more sensitive to user's frustration. Conrad wrote in the Google Web Search Help forums:

On behalf of the iGoogle team, I would like to thank all of you for your feedback. We understand that this won't be easy, which is why we established a long sunset period. iGoogle will continue to be available for another 16 months.

There are also other alternatives out there on the web in addition to those we mentioned earlier, as pointed out by others in this forum. While the transition may be difficult, this is part of our broader goal to focus our efforts and build a better Google.

I am sure Google has plans to migrate much of this functionality into a Google+ experience but for now, people really should look for alternatives.
