Independent launches iGoogle widget

The Independent is pleased to announce a new iGoogle widget to enable users to keep up with the news, without visiting the site itself.

Enabling users to view all of the latest new headlines as well as Sports, Business at a glance, the new widget also expands to full screen view to display all of the day's events at a glance. With tens of millions of users worldwide, iGoogle users can now view articles on all of their favourite subjects while checking their emails or updating their calendar.

"We see iGoogle as your own personal place on the internet to really customise your searching and your browsing experience into whatever you like", says Fiona Herring, iGoogle Product Manager. "This a great tool to bring all of your news together and have one place where you can come to in the morning and see all of the headlines in the day."

"We're delighted with our new toy," says Jimmy Leach, editorial director for digital at the Independent. "We've worked closely with Google to put this together and it will be a fantastically useful source of news and opinion for Google users now and in the future.
