I notice iGoogle’s notice of closure has disappeared from my, former, homepage. Either way, I have made some pretty good progress towards my requirements of filling the vacuum.
The biggest being: stickynotes. I keep all sorts of random important stuff there that I could never do without: birthdays, mySql queries that I only need about once a year, phone numbers, websites, names, etc.
anyway, here it is: myGoogol
Yeah, they’ve probably trademarked those two real words. Trade marking real words shouldn’t be legal. If you want to trademark something it should have to be terribly misspelled.
I would like to git-hub this to let people add features, but I haven’t thought of a way to do that and keep things secure.
update3: is now more secure. the encryption key is not stored at the server. However it is stored in a cookie, which unfortunately is transmitted to the server on every request. I will look into alternative client-side data storage some more. From what I’ve read so far it does not work in older IE[6,7]. So the cookie plan may be a good fallback.
update4: localStorage is now used. Cookies are the fallback.
this is now probably one of the most secure sites on the internet. Would be at least pretty challenging to decrypt users data.
The encryption stuff is going to create a critical window of potential error: password changes. The key for encryption is based on the password. If the password is changed the unencrypted-client-side data will need to be re-encrypted. If for any reason this fails, the cryptography will run into problems, potential for data loss.
I’d definitely at least like to setup a public git-log view, with comments section.
major feature it’s currently lacking: change password.
now it has change password.
