Seen recently is the complete restoration of iGoogle Directory. The new design shows gadgets in one neat column unlike the previous design which was rather messy.

According to Philipp Lenssen, the new design makes more space to display author information, which is linked to a revamped author page.

"Author pages are now bundling all gadgets identified by one email address, as provided in the module XML author info. If you have different gadget categories, you might be able to separate them via email addresses like john.doe+triviagadgets@gmail.com, john.doe+newsgadgets@gmail.com and so on (the plus operator is supported by Gmail and will still send all messages to the same account, where you can then handle them using Gmail’s filter options). The search functionality is also still available, and you can mix and match sorting (hottest, most users, or newest) with categories (like all, news, tools, lifestyle). Adding a gadget has become easier than before, because when you click the "Add it now" button there will be no additional security warning to approve anymore… the gadget will be instantly added."

We think its looks great, do write in to let us know what you think and what changes you would bring. In terms of functionality the "Add RSS feed" feature, does not quite live up to what its meant to do.
