I don't get AJAX homepages
It might be just me, but I don't get the buzz about AJAX homepages. I mean, sure, they're AJAX and sparkly and draggy and all that - but they're still portals, aren't they? I never wanted portals to be more dynamic, or even open to third-party-authored widgets - I wanted them to go away altogether. My feed reading is too expansive to fit inside little headline widgets, my weather report sits in my menu bar, and for anything else that does fit into a little widget I've got Dashboard. This just seems like another thing that's neat like digital watches, with a horrible user interface for doing anything actually useful.
