Is Google Chrome Going Away?

Dear WorldStart,

In an attempt NOT to bother you, I researched this, but could not find an answer. SORRY! Are ‘iGoogle’ and ‘Google Chrome’ the same thing? I thought all along I had ‘Chrome’, but, I keep getting warnings about the demise of ‘iGoogle’ on November 1st, 2013. What happens on that date if I simply do nothing?

No bother at all, Terry. That’s why we’re here. Here’s the scoop: Google Chrome is a browser. That means it’s a program you use to look at (browse) the Internet. Other popular browsers include Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari.

iGoogle is a service that lets you set up a personalized dashboard to view certain content, much same as My Yahoo! and the home page offered by AOL. Nothing at all is going to happen to Chrome when iGoogle goes away. If you’re using iGoogle as a homepage, you’ll want to choose a new one. You can check out this article to learn about a good alternative to iGoogle.
