Google has done it again -- they just made something available for Google Personalized Homepage that could have a very positive effect on the number, or at least the loyalty of people using the personalized homepage. Currently, I have mine set to "Beach" -- a fairly tasteful and relaxing theme from what I can tell. While writing this article, I've had at three people come up behind me at work here and ask me how I got my Google to look like that -- that says something about how sticky this new feature is going to be.
Here is a list of themes currently available:
- Bus Stop
- City Scape
- Sweet Dreams
- Tea House
- Seasonal Scape
Every theme (with the exception of "Classic") can be associated with your location -- picking up either the time of day or current weather conditions to give your homepage even more of a personal touch.
