What could be improved for next Ginger Update release of Netvibes (part1)

Hi,

As the Netvibes Galactic Team, also the Netvibers are never complitely satisfied ...

After the first Positive impression here are some improvements I would like to see for the next Update to have an even better Netviber experience ;) :

  1. the possibility to arrange freely the widgets in the Tab alternatively with the "rigid" 1-2-3-4 columns that is the actual option. That is required if you are not using only Widgets for Feed reading but if you want to show Images, or Web sites, or even Webnotes that could cover more than 1 column...

  2. the possibility to choose Content, Widgets and Friends not only in the way the order established by Netvibes but also with an alphabetic order and a more recent order.

  3. the PREVIOUS-NEXT navigation button should be replaced by a LAST-FIRST button, allowing to search in the 2 directions. Because at the moment you can only start looking for the content from the first. But if you used the LAST anf FIRST directions you would cut searches lenghts by 2. (When you have 40-60 widgets or friends to look at it can save time...
  4. Universes should have also the option to be restricted "only to selected friends" with a specific password but no login . This option would increase dramatically the viral capabilities of Netvibes as you could send this Universe to friends and family with no need for them to register to view your Universe and knowing that nobody "not fromthe group" can see it or use it.
  5. The SEARCH for the content is not working as I would like. If I search for my Blog feed: "netviber experience" I have 6 results but not my blog :( But the SEARCH has received anyway a big improvement over last version as now on the right side of the results you have 4 search boxes (Web, Blog, Images and Video) that are already presetted with your search string !!! Perfect. So if I use the Web search I can Add the Search box in my Tab then look for the Link I want than look for the rss and add it to my site. Not easy but working...

Thanks Plaxdan,
I will add that in a future post...
Do you have a already Universe ?

Not yet - I've looking forward to making one for several months though! :)

Cool.
You can already prepare yourself. There is a Send this Tab to my Universe option that will transfer all the Tab with the preconfigured content. So, when the day comes, You will have your own Universe online in minutes.

Have you already thought at the Name ? Because there is no way to change it later...

For possible new Invitations before the General update check this blog and the Facebook group... ;)

Bye
