Common Sections Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Much better alternative to iGoogle. Excellent way to maximize space. Clean looking. Lots of program options. Thank you.
Takes a while to redraw the page after gmail loads (longer the more sections you have, obviously). Changing the size doesn't seem to do anything for me. Would be nice to be able to add own favicons and other visual styling elements.
In addition to the current defaults, here are some common ones:
Contacts - Custom - http://www.google.com/contacts
Tasks - Gadget - http://www.google.com/ig/modules/tasks.xml
Docs - Gadget - www.google.com/ig/modules/docs.xml
Talk - Gadget - http://www.google.com/ig/modules/googletalk.xml (haven't tested this, this to see if it will post two messages to the browser window every time).
I'm not sure I get how to load "built-in" gadgets, or gadgets that take UserPrefs for example:
Weather - http://www.google.com/ig/modules/builtin_weather.xml (considered a "built-in" gadget that also takes UserPrefs - zip code, specifically)
Fish - http://fishgadget.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/fish.xml (works without UserPrefs, but would still like to be able to pass the user prefs through)
