Have you tried my.aol.com lately? It seems that AOL has stepped up their homepage offering, and it is now a lot more dynamic. It even offers the opportunity to use Google Gadgets (widgets) on my.aol.com page!
I hope that the my.aol.com browser start page has some new tricks up its sleeve soon, such as a compressed header and an easier way to add additional modules and pages. It definitely looks like a rip off of Google’s homepage, iGoogle, but I’m not complaining. The information included in my browser start page is incredibly helpful and useful to me!
