New Google Personalized Homepage Features

If you use Google personalized homepage there are some cool new features that I really like! The two new features are choosing a theme of your choice and adding another personalized page tab. I wanted to add a tab with Fitness information so I selected Add a tab and entered Fitness into the form and Google automatically populated the page with Fitness widgets:

You can also move widgets from one page to another by simply dragging the widget to the tab of the page that you want it to be in!

The themes are also really smart. Depending on which theme you choose, they display the weather that is currently happening in your area. I chose the bus stop theme from the theme list:

Then I entered in my zip code and it showed the theme with the sun shining:

Then I went to and looked at the current weather conditions for an area that it was raining. I saw that it was raining in Lynnwood, WA, so I entered that into the zip code field and then the theme changed. It was now raining in the theme! As you can see, the characters also changed clothes for rainy weather:

I am very impressed with Google themes and tabs for the personalized homepage. I will definitely be using my Google personalized homepage a lot more!
