Netvibes: Latest ajaxian portal

Category: Portal

We have a new contender in the “Ajaxian Portal” stakes (after, googles additions, etc).

Netvibes is the new kid on the block, and is developed by a quality french team.

The aim of it is to provide a place on the internet where you can set just the content you like, a super easy way of building your personalized homepage, available anywhere, anytime. No registration is needed, however if you want to access your page from another computer you’ll be able to do it by registering with your email address and a password. As you can see on the left there are a lot of features still in the works, but we’ve decided to put Netvibes online as it is now so you can start playing with it.

Check out the live beta of Netvibes

Check out the Netvibes blog for more info

They are working on:

  • create more localized versions
  • use localized informations feeds for each languages and countries.
  • add more applications that use RSS (like flickr,…)
  • check integration, synergy with other web 2.0 applications
  • opera, safari, mobile integration
  • integrate collaborative features between registered users

Kudos to the Netvibes team, and thanks for having as one of the feeds on the page! Much appreciated!

Definitely the best around that I’ve seen. But, Microsoft’s Live ( may end up being the next best portal.
