Google’s Lost it’s Cookies
Reading through the blogs and the notes attached to each Google “gadget,” it appears something has been happening in the background at Google and all that’s left are a few fingerprints and cookie crumbs.
As far as I understand, the gadgets use profile-specific “cookies” for authored gadgets (non-Google). For example, things like the del.icio.us, Enhanced Bookmarks, and other cool plug-ins to the iGoogle homepage.
Well, earlier this week, something has gone astray. I haven’t had del.icio.us bookmarks all week and today, my Enhanced Bookmarks… just vanished. *twitch*
I like Google’s because I use gmail, google docs and really like having the translator (my workplace has 6 “official” languages, so I’m constantly translating UI elements and such) and wikipedia show up for quick reference. I’d be a bit more inclined to MSN if I was a Hotmail user… but no. But, on the other hand, I can’t deal with this unreliability… especially when it’s not something that I can back up.
So, I’m curious… what does everyone use for a “home page”?
