Netvibes to replace iGoogle?

NetVibes is a website that provides a service very like the iGoogle page, granting you a base website that you can add gadgets, newsfeeds, etc to and use for a landing-zone to get all of your net reading in one place.  I was able to export my Google Reader settings and import them into NetVibes, then use NetVibes in "Reader" mode and it is a better RSS reader than the Google Reader was.  I got my reddit feed by adding the Reddit gadget to NetVibes and then putting it into the 'Livebar' on the right, and voila - I have just replaced 95% of the functionality of what I used iGoogle for.
