Web portals seem to come and go. I’ve tried a number of them out there and none of them has ever really stuck with me. They are usually either too clunky or too slow. The newest one that I’m playing with is from Netvibes.com. This one like Google’s portal offering utilizes ajax. However, unlike Google’s (for me at least) Netvibe’s works really well and is really fast. Combining the widget idea and rss feeds you can make the ultimate portal available to you from anywhere on the net. So far I’m digging it! Head on over and give it a try, you’ll be amazed at the flexibility and usefulness of Netvibes.
