Google has now added some more opportunities for developers of the world to unite. Similar to what Firefox has done with extensions, Google is now doing with your personal homepage. There will be more of these “extensions” available as time goes on, but there are currently a few available to add right now. Some of these include a weather map, an analog clock with calendar, and customizing the Google logo that is displayed for you. This could be the start of a beautiful thing. This is from the Official Google Blog:

The personalized homepage was created to bring together the stuff that interests you from across the web. From an engineering perspective, this became an opportunity to create a framework for all types of content and information. Supporting RSS and Atom feeds was one step in that direction, and today we’re excited to start supporting richer web apps as well. With the Google Homepage API, developers can now create modules for the personalized homepage. It’s designed to be flexible and easy to use, and you don’t need to download anything to create a module. To get the ball rolling, the team’s created a few modules to add to the directory. So check these out and get started creating your own.
