iGoogle replacement


Ok, this requires a bit of explanation:

Apparently, Google is dropping iGoogle support in about a year (LINK ). If you aren't familiar, it's essentially a heavily customizable homepage.

Anyway, I know this seems an odd board for it, but my iGoogle page is filled primarily with world news and politics (BBC, CNN, WSJ, etc, etc). So, I was wondering if any of you politically minded individuals use a service similar to iGoogle that I could switch to when it gets the axe.

Firefox and Opera both have Speed Dial features. You put thumbnails on your home page that link to your favorite sites. I think you can have up to 6 rows and up to 12 columns or something like that. So you could have one row for news, one for message boards, one for banking, etc.

Hm... doesn't really fill the same niche because I can't see headlines, but something to think about. Just for visuals, this is what the top part of my homepage looks like:
