There is plenty of chatter about Live.com and how it [sucks|rocks] from various NZ .Net bloggers.

I’ll stay away from the discussion other than to say I like that they’re trying new things – it’s better than nothing. Now, what I would like to see is the general experience being more like NetVibes. Again, trawling through my statistics I found I’ve had several hundred hits from http://www.netvibes.com

In terms of portals (which I don’t personally love) it’s pretty cool. The multiple tabs (drag the widgets onto them), the fact I can name the page what I want etc – it all seems a lot smoother than Live.com.

Anyway, that’s all I really wanted to say for now :) Like everyone else I’ll try and get my post Code Camp review out soon.

I probably account for a few of those hundreds. I use netvibes for everything – blogs, newspapers, gmail, gcalendar, delicious tags, todo list and other stuff.

Btw, I just spoke to JB about Netvibes this evening vs. Live. He reckons he should do a demo of that :D

I do it with http://www.protopage.com because I like its individuality no two site are ever the same!
Personality on the web?

Hmmm netvibes eh, I’m using live.com right now and I think I’ll just stick with it. Netvibes looks nice and works well but I’m confident that live.com will be better once it’s out of beta. Time will tell…

I quite like it myself – I like the fact that I can even name the page how I want. Camaracut, protopage is also nice but feels a bit too much like the OS with windows floating around to me :) I don’t quite get why people would want to have something that feels like Windows running in a browser.

Good to know the hits are because of you Allan :)
