Today, iGoogle jumped on the design refresh bandwagon and rolled out a sleek and simple new interface. We hope these changes will enhance your experience when navigating through iGoogle.

In addition to the visible design changes like new colors and spacing, we’ve made some changes to functionality to showcase the content that really matters to you: we’ve hidden buttons and navigation links until they're actually needed. Now you can collapse the left panel to give yourself room for more gadgets, or pop it back out when you want to chat with a friend.
