I recently switched from google/ig to Netvibes. This is a great AJAX desktop, far ahead of the others in my opinion.
And as I like to make a desktop my own, I wrote three modules for netvibes:
Daily comics module, inspired from the comics google module by Grimmthething. Presents a list of comics, hover on one and the daily strip appears:
BG image, a port/extract of my Personalized Home module. Displays a stretched image as netvibe's background. Also makes the modules background transparent:
Quick search, a small search box, with only the query box and a set of icons linking to the search engines. Enter a term, click the icon you choose, and the results opens in a new window.
Have a look at netvibes wiki page for more info and other modules.
