Even More Google Customizing
Google has taken the personalized homepage concept a step further down the development path and released an API for creating homepage modules.
Google software engineer Adam Sah wrote in the entry that some Googlers had created a few sample modules to work with the personalized homepage. Five modules in the directory lets users add features like a weather map or the current date-and-time to their pages.
Developers do not need to download any special tools to create modules, the Homepage API guide said. After building a module, developers can submit it to Google for review and possible inclusion into the homepage module directory.
