The New iGoogle

The new version of iGoogle, currently available for a small number of randomly-selected users and for developers (called sandbox), will bring together all the Google services in a single fluid interface. At some point, iGoogle was a part of an initiative called Fusion that allowed users to combine content from across the web. The next major iteration of iGoogle goes further and it lets you actually access the full content, monitor the updates and share them with your friends.

See Access GMail with Google Sandbox.
