    Goowy has 2 GB of storage for email, a calendar, personalized content, using Flash as the engine pretends to be a desktop OS - has a Dock, a RSS app, stickies, games, allows reminders, email notifiers and more.

    I really like the flash, and I don't mind the quotes. However I wish I could do away with the feeds.

    It only removes the feeds for that session. When I log back the feeds are there. I have signed in 3 times today, and one the third time it did not load. Maybe you are only allowed so many login a day (?)

    Same thing with the feeds reloading after deletion here. It's still in beta...

    There's no limit to the number of times you can login. I've logged in 1/2 a dozen times or more trying to get the browsers autologin feature to work. No success as of yet on that front.

    Thanks for passing it along, iceni60. ;)

    Yes, thanks for passing it around.

    AvianFlux, after it loads, click the desktop icon. This hides everything. Then when you want mail just click the mail button. Its the only way I found to get rid of feeds, and it only stays this way untill you log off.

    I am just getting use to it now. I am pass the 50% mark of keeping it. It works great, and its just so cool to look at. The 2gb of storage doesn't hurt either. The big guessing game now is...will it stay around. It really is a great set up, and to offer it free, with only a small tag at the bottom seems strange. The old to good to be true.

    OK. I have the not loading problem fixed (I think). If I close the browser then reopen, it works fine.


    *** Wrong, just tried to get in again, and it loaded a blank page. Don't know why.
