10 iGoogle Themes I Like

Here are my ten iGoogle themes that I suggest you try. Although these themes are not created by Google, they’re cool. Most of the themes I like have one color with different shades. The other themes give a joyful background, and some are simple yet they create character to my personalized homepage. I would say that my choices were not mainly affected by their designs on top of my iGoogle page, but also based on the designers’ choice of colors on the links and on the gadgets.

As you can see, I included on this post the number of users and ratings of the themes. But be aware that these data may change as time goes by. Just click on the theme’s name below, and you will be directed to the page where you can add the theme, or read the latest number of users, comments, and ratings.

If you however don’t like the themes I listed here, you can check iGoogle’s theme search page, or you can create your own theme.

Ellie and Me (By Google, Inc. )


Though it says by Google Inc., it didn’t have the Google logo like other iGoogle themes created by Google so I guess this is an exception. Anyways this theme is about “A day in the life of Ellie and her cat – a simple iGoogle skin to brighten your day.”
