Netvibes is on the move again

The Netvibes team seems to like to put out features in large spurts. A few months ago i wrote about 4 awesome new features added in 7 days, yesterday i noticed a whole lot more. Now there’s even more new features and upgrades to existing modules. i’ve since registered for an account and log in on a regular basis. All in all, my Netvibes page is getting pretty intense.

Here’s a breakdown of all the new features added or upgraded since my previous post:

  1. Compatibility with Opera web browser [ December 12, 2005 ]
  2. To Do list module – i love this one – [ December 30, 2005 ]
  3. Yahoo mail module – similar to the Gmail module – [ January 2, 2006 ]
  4. Gmail module upgrade – set a title and no. of items to display – [ January 2, 2006 ]
  5. To Do list upgraded – set a title and color, and more – [ January 2, 2006 ]
  6. POP IMAP module – secure connections, webmail URL, more – [ January 2, 2006 ]
  7. RSS module upgraded – set a color for each feed – [ January 2, 2006 ]

You’ll notice that all but the first 2 features/upgrades were actually added on the same day. i am consistently impressed with the rate at which Netvibes puts out new modules. it seems they’re really on to something here. i’m sure that there’s definitely room for many more interesting modules in the near future.

On a side note, i remember when the Gmail module was first added to Netvibes. At the time, i didn’t even have a Gmail account yet. Back then i was thinking to myself, i wish Netvibes had that feature for Yahoo Mail. It’s funny, because now that they do offer the Yahoo Mail module, i realized that yahoo.com domains don’t get free POP access (although apparently many international yahoo domains do. – ie: yahoo.fr) – so i wouldn’t have been able to use the module even if it was available, and i still can’t use it. Here’s to hoping that Yahoo catches on to this problem, because this is not the first time i’ve had the opportunity to access my POP account from a different web based service/software and haven’t been able to. As i have mentioned before, i am slowly moving over to from Yahoo Mail to Gmail – and no POP access is one of my main reasons for doing this. i know that Yahoo Mail is in the process of getting a complete overhaul, but this is all happening behind the scenes and i’m just not sure how much longer i can wait.

Anyway, i’ll probably set up the POP IMAP module and test it out next. i’ve already been using the To Do list module for a little while and find that this is a great addition to the Netvibes content set. I’ve always felt that a full-blown desktop app for something as trivial as a To Do list was overkill. Here’s the perfect solution. Overall, there are probably a lot more situations like this involving bloated softwares, etc. And i think that if the folks at Netvibes can keep this in mind, they’ll likely find inspiration for many more modules. Nevertheless, from the looks of things, i get the impression they aren’t having too many problems in the inspiration department.
