    Thanks for the information and updates! But I can’t help but wonder will it eat up more space on my computer? Or will the loading time increase of this new feature when in mobile and tablet?

    Hi Netvibes!

    Thanks for a great service! A couple of questions:

    1) Where has the Netvibes forum gone?

    2) Can you please add an option to make searches in the Google search box open up instead of opening new Netvibes tabs?

    Thanks again!

    What happened to the Netvibes forums? It redirects to this blog, and there’s still a link to it from the main page.

    I love the revamp! Especially this “new podcast player with better integration.” I have always like podcast.

    I’ve had one noteworthy annoyance with the top bar for quite a while: whenever I’m finished reading a feed, the X button to close it is in the top right corner just underneath the user menu (account/help/become vip/sign out), and if I accidentally move the mouse too far up, the user menu opens up and covers the X so that I can’t close the feed.

    It’s only a small issue but it’s been there forever and there should be really simple to fix: either make the feed view cover up the top bar, or make the top bar require a click to make the menu appear. I love everything else about your service, but this is a frequent frustration.

    What happened to the forums and why aren’t you reply to any of these questions here? By not replying it indicates either you don’t monitor this or don’t care enough about your subscribers to do so.

    Bring back the forum or at the very least tell us why you’ve nixed it to begin with.
