Start Using the New iGoogle Today:
"Last week we told you about iGoogle's new look, which they've rolled out to a few users in June and will continue to roll out to users through July. However, if you're dying to start using the new iGoogle today you can head to the iGoogle Sandbox Sign Up page and enable the new iGoogle right now. The only catch: Google puts you on the honor system that you're a developer. If you're comfortable calling yourself a developer (there are no real checks in place), then go ahead and get started. Either way, hit the jump for a closer look at the new iGoogle."
**Note from Eric - I tried this for a day and was looking for a way to change back pretty quickly. Didn't like this at all because having another column for navigation on the page makes your RSS Gadgets even smaller. I'm already fighting for width on my gadgets and this just made it smaller.
From a practical standpoint, having a row for the navigation above the RSS Gadgets seems to be the best place for them.
I was able to change it back just by hitting this url:www.google.com/ig/sandbox
