If you don't use iGoogle, but want to personalize your homepage check out Poodwaddle, which allows you to create your own home page with a search engine, dictionary, thesaurus, encyclopedia, maps, calculator and games. The personalized pages look like widgets, so if you're not keen on using widgets you still can get easy access to web tools in one place.
My favorite element in the Poodwaddle universe is its World Clock, which is a running tab of census type statistics around the world. You'll find an ever-growing list of world population numbers, population growth, disease statistics, internet access points, computers produced and other pertinent data. The figures are approximations from the World Health Organization, but you can view them by year, month, week, day and moment. The world clock can be added to your Poodwaddle home page.
