Its too early to say anything about the success of this concept, but I personally feel this is just one of many revolutions in making we would witness in our lives.
Here is what they have to say in their welcome email -
Thanks for taking the time to check out the goowy personal webtop. Our vision is to offer you a fresh desktop-like experience on the web for communicating and sharing.
Goowy delivers an integrated webtop experience for managing your personal communications (integrated instant messaging, email, contacts, and calendar), organizing and sharing your files (online file storage), and centrally aggregating your web data (minis for weather, stocks, news, rss feeds, pictures, to do lists, music and more).
Below is a brief summary of all of the great services you get with goowy:
The desktop page is a quick start dashboard for all of the things that you can do with the goowy (re) application. Either click on one of the actions or navigate goowy using the bottom navigation toolbar. If you want to change your default start page you can do so in Options General Settings.
Instant message with all of your buddies (AIM, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo and more) all in one place, anytime and anywhere. Just add your username and password for your IM accounts and goowy will bring them all together in a cool web based interface.
Upload, organize and share your personal files with goowy drive. You can upload files and access them from anywhere using goowy. We even have a cool mini music player built in so you can listen to your music on any computer right through goowy.
A powerful webmail application that delivers desktop-like email functionality including drag and drop, auto-refresh, right clicks, keyboard shortcuts and more, in an elegant, easy to use interface.
Now its easy to organize your life. Pull up the calendar and add your important events, invite friends and be reminded of your upcoming schedule.
Manage all of your contacts in goowy. You can import contacts from your existing mail application or add them manually. When you add contacts they will appear in your mail, calendar and through out goowy.
Minis are mini applications that you can configure and personalize that give you access to information and functionality from across the web all in one place. Check out our minis for web search, flickr photo search, quote of the day, weather, news, rss feeds, itunes top songs, bookmarks and more.
We have fun games to help you relax :)
