David Cohen sends in this in regards to iGoogle.com, Google’s personalized homepage —”Not sure if this has been mentioned before... I just stumbled onto it... Click on the drop down box for a tab, then ’edit tab’... and now, not only can you change the name of it, you can change the column layout.”

Now you can edit the layout of an iGoogle tab. Choose between 7 layouts:

  1. single column (this is pretty ugly)
  2. a. two equal-sized columns
    • b, c. two columns: a narrow one and a wide one (there are two flavors for this layout)
  3. a. three equal-sized columns (this is default one)
  4. b. two narrow columns and a wide column in the middle
  5. four equal-sized columns

I think the most interesting layouts are the ones that combine different types of columns, so you can have more space for the gadgets. The last layout is great for wide-screen computer monitors.

To edit the layout of a tab, click on the small arrow next to its name and choose "Edit this tab". You have the option to rename it and choose a new template. For now, there's no option to change the layout for all the tabs at once.
