Search giant Google is getting a make-over, and this time it's personal. A new feature allowing users of the search engine to personalise their google home page in a My Yahoo style was quietly released yesterday. This from news.com:

Google's home page is about to get a face-lift.

In what appears to be a broadside aimed at MyYahoo, Google rolled out a new feature on Thursday that lets people set up a personalized Google home page.

The feature, which has not yet been named, lets people with Gmail and other Google accounts create a home page with different modules that they can drag and drop across their page, giving them one place to go for e-mail, headlines, weather reports, maps, movie schedules and, of course, Web search.

Looks like a good idea, and is a departure from Google's clean minimalist style. But is it all just a slavish imitation of their competitors approaches, or a genuine attempt at greater integration between Google's burgeoning product roster. Let us know your thoughts here.
