Interesting Google Homepage Variant

Thought this was worth posting – a screenshot sent over by Jemima after going directly to Google.co.uk, she was presented with this setup dialogue:

igoogle

You can see from the link in the top right hand corner that the Google homepage is its iGoogle guise.

I’ve never seen an automatic redirect to iGoogle’s homepage before – perhaps this is an attempt to get more users signed up to iGoogle? Note that Jemima was not signed in. Curious…

    I have seen this before when not singed in. Always just it it down to google knowing something from the cookies on my PC that I usually use iGoogle? Would be interesting to know of any one else has some thoughts on it.
