Netvibes Re-Ups Ecosystem

Posted Sep 25, 2007

Netvibes has recently relaunched their Ecosystem, a widget directory. Netvibes partnered NYTimes, CBS Interactive, CNET Asia, Clearspring, Widgetbox, RockYou, Miniclip, NewsGator, and yourminis for more widgets.
Some of the Premium Widgets has tabs that provide an easier way to find content and now finding widgets are easy to find by categories.  I would say that as of right now, Daily Comics is my favorite widget.  Once you add it to your Netvibes account, there is a list of comics.  If you put your mouse over a cartoon name, it will show today’s comic for that title.

What I’m still waiting for in terms of additions to the Ecosystem by Netvibes however is the ability to create public Universes.  I subscribe to many resourceful RSS feeds about technology (including the New York Times Technology section and Techmeme) and I want others in my space to benefit from what I read.  Between TechCrunch, Mashable, GigaOM, Read/WriteWeb, ValleyWag and myself, I am fairly certain that we subscribe to the same feeds.
