iGoogle Redirect?

A couple of times today I have typed google.com into my address bar and instead of going to the Google search page I was taken to my iGoogle account. The first time it happened I didn’t think much of it. I have several Google accounts running simultaneously at work, and I figured I must have typed igoogle or something.

It happened again tonight on my laptop. I am wondering if this is something Google is testing or if there is just some glitch in my Chrome browser. As I am pondering this I remember that I have Chrome set on the developer channel. It is possible that this is something that is coming later and is being tested now.

When I looked around in iGoogle tonight I found a link to change back to the traditional Google search page. I clicked it, and now I can’t replicate the anomaly. I didn’t see any chatter on Twitter or on the blogs I read. I am going to keep my eye on this. I will post updates here as I learn more.

Update:No sooner had I posted this than I got the iGoogle page again from typing google.com.
