BlueG Makes Strides To Become The Most Popular IGoogle Replacement Since Google's Closure Of Its Personalized Homepage

LONDON, December 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

BlueG seamlessly stepped in when Google shutdown the iGoogle homepage on November 1 st, providing the same kind of start page service beloved by tens of millions of Internet users. Since then it has gained significant traction in the market while continuing to add new features.

Recently the company added the top 50 iGoogle gadgets, all instantly accessible through categories such as News, Fun & Games, Sport and Lifestyle. Some of the most popular include Google Weather; Date and Time; Google Translate; Google Maps Search, How-to of the Day; Google News; NPR; Simply Recipes; Flood-It!; Wikipedia; and Twitter/Facebook.

Feature-rich shopping gadgets have been added-just in time for Christmas-so major stores can be browsed without leaving your personalized home page. Popular interest channels are also now featured enabling users to find the latest news, reviews and best buys for Music, Entertainment, Games, Gadgets, Sport and Fashion.

Says Darren Bond, Creative Director for BlueG, "BlueG has been specifically designed to be a 'true' iGoogle replacement. We took the time to match iGoogle's impressive gadget catalogue and much of its themes catalogue so that iGoogle users can switch from iGoogle to BlueG and hardly notice the difference. We are delighted that our iGoogle replacement is proving to be such a success."

BlueG goes beyond delivering a "similar" appearance to iGoogle. It comprises a wealth of the most acclaimed iGoogle features such as the ability to customize the homepage with favorite gadgets, news feeds and engaging background themes.
