New Netvibes Ecosystem 3: Better, Faster & More Platforms!


Netvibes continues to grow and user signups have increased 25% on a weekly basis since two weeks ago. This means more of our dashboard apps are being used than ever before.

That’s why we’ve made major improvements to the Netvibes Ecosystem to help deliver apps faster, cleaner and to even more users on more platforms. Now you can even install your favorite Netvibes apps on Chrome and Blogger!

Faster: We’ve got a lot of feedback on improving Netvibes’ speed and responsiveness, and we’ve listened! Eco now runs roughly four times faster than before. This is important so we can serve more users instantly, especially on mobile devices.

Cleaner: We want to make sure that the best apps remain. From now on, buggy or unused ones will be progressively removed to ensure the best app experience.

More New Platforms: Most importantly, with our 3 new compilers, you can now use Netvibes on a wider range of platforms:

Business developers can also now deploy UWA apps with a native-like UI on iPhone, iPad and other mobile platforms (Android, BlackBerry OS 5 & 6, HP WebOS 2 & 3).

Other improvements:

  • New “Tools” page – 3rd party extensions and other goodies!
  • New Multifeed wizard – Instantly make your own multi-feed app!
  • New thumbnails system for Apps/Dashboards/Themes
  • Improved IE support
  • Improved Theme editor with previews
  • Other bug fixes and security improvements

Check out the new Netvibes Ecosystem 3 at: eco.netvibes.com

As you can tell, Netvibes is still growing and we’re still working on improving our Dashboards, for both our Basic and Premium users. The first step is to ensure the long-term growth of quality apps for our dashboards with a faster, cleaner Ecosystem that runs on even more platforms.

We will continue to build out our Ecosystem and UWA technologies to help developers “code once, deploy everywhere”. Our motto is still to help people “dashboard everything” – everywhere on every platform.

So stay tuned for new apps built using for our new Ecosystem and UWA 2!

    First look at this, and I really don’t like it at all. Totally ruined my page. Changed all my colors (which I had set because of eye problems). No ‘mark as read’, even clicking on an item doesn’t show you have read this item, and doesn’t go to link in Netvibes, but does in iGoogle.

    Some problems after upgrade………….Header logos on some multifeed widgets are not displaying on my Home page.I’ve had to reinstall these
    Installation totals have not updated for over a year now.
    Apps/widgets installed directly from ecosystem (as opposed to via “add content”) are not installing in the traditional style; the updated style is odd – RSS feeds seem to open on RSS feed page rather than the link itself

    Please sort the header images out on multifeed apps!! – cannot be cropped or resized as before. Many header images not showing at all when installed on Netvibes
    eg.http://eco.netvibes.com/apps/307549/lifehacker

    Hi Netvibes,

    Not sure if this is related, all of my “Remixed Feed Reader” widgets have stopped working completely. All other widgets still work ok.

    Any ideas?
