    Happy birthday, Netvibes! I have been a loyal for years now, back when they called them startpages. Many have come and gone since, but I have always relied on you to keep me up to date on what is going on in the world. Every day my pinned Netvibes tab is there for me; I can’t imagine staying informed without it.

    Happy birthday!

    I’ve been a long-time netvibes user, I just checked and I have used it for the last 11 and a half year, on a daily basis, wow. As such an early user I even joined the translations and localised the service into my language.

    It’s a super convenient way to aggregate all the news that matter to me and group them into categories. It’s the first tab I always pin.

    Whether or not I get the VIP pass, I just hope netvibes continues to exist and provide great experience.

    Happy birthday Netvibes.
    You’ve been my homepage for a few years now, I get all the news, 3 different e-mail accounts, weather and blogs, all on the same spot. The mobile version has its ups and downs, but it also works. I believe I will keep using your services for a long time.
    Feliz aniversário!

  • Reply Tiger September 19, 2017 at 1:45 pm

    Happy birthday, Netvibes! I’ve been using Netvibes since the day Microsoft’s RSS aggregation service,, died and replaced by something else.

    It’s my daily entrance to Internet, not Google. 🙂

  • Reply Dave September 19, 2017 at 5:49 pm

    I came here when Google pulled the plug on iGoogle, looking to reproduce the look ‘n feel of that service. Netvibes came the closest. I use it daily to keep up with dozens of web sites and blogs.

  • Reply Juan Carlos Bermúdez September 20, 2017 at 7:37 am

    I discovered Netvibes long time ago (not 12 years ago, but almost).

    I connect here daily first time in the morning because through Netvibes I’m connected to the information that’s important to me in a way that not other place can give me.

  • Reply Andrew Redpath September 20, 2017 at 8:42 am

    Been using netvibes for years, would be great to get VIP 😀

  • Reply Mark Hillen September 20, 2017 at 1:47 pm

    You’ve been my home page for at least a decade. AJAX pioneer, and now in indispensable dashboard – I don’t know how I’d start my day without you.

  • Reply Keith September 20, 2017 at 4:21 pm

    Happy Birthday Netvibes. I’m not sure if I’ve been using you for all 12 years, but I’ve been a nearly daily user for more than 10. From grad student to tech counsel, you’ve been an integral part of how I consume information. Thanks so much!

  • Reply Arnaud Forgiel September 21, 2017 at 3:21 pm

    12 years already! I discovered Netvibes in 2008 to keep track of my information sources and continue to use it everyday. Actually, Netvibes is the first URL I type in the morning. In fact, i just need to type the character ‘n’ as Microsoft Edge already knows which site I’ll visit first.
    Thank you for being part of my daily routine!

  • Reply Joao Paulo Tavares September 21, 2017 at 3:55 pm

    Happy Birthday!!!!
    I hope I am not too late to enter the competition!!!
    I started using Netvibes on 19/09/2008 (I still have got the very first email I received from you guys) and it has been quite a journey. I’ve loved every bit of it.

    I’ve been a Netvibes user & fan since I was 12! I love reading blogs and this was the perfect solution. I LOVE NETVIBES! Keep up the great work guys:)

    12 years helping people to be more organized and efficient on the day to day of their studies and work.
    Congratulations, Netvibes, for offering us this amazing platform with a previous free access.
    I have been using it to teach my students of marketing how to improve the selection of contents to social media strategies. Now, I am improving myself to be more skilled on Netvibes in order to use it on the Public Relations education, as they need much more functions. My favorite is the RSS app!
    Good job!
    Parabés! ¡Enhorabuena!

    Netvibes helped me excel in a field where none of my colleagues knew of it, though all of them should have been using it. So glad you’re still here since I adopted Netvibes around 2006.

    Generalmente siempre vamos a necesitar de los servicios de un electricista en Barcelona que haga la función de empresas de electricidad que sean confiables y que nos garanticen la realización de un trabajo realmente eficaz, rápido y garantizado.
