I suggest you ...

add an option to have the Google search on the Dashboard open in a new browser tab, or just go to Google within the same tab.

Not crazy about how using the search opens a new dashboard tab. Would much prefer it to open a new browser tab when I search, or just go to directly to Google's search page. Please add this option! Thank you.

        I agree with all the comments below. Will probably not use Netvibes in future.

        I have elected NOT to use netvibes any longer because of this issue (inability to remove google search tabs) and have gone to igoogle portal which is much more accomodating.

        Could not agree more. I'm using netvibes very infrequently because of just this quirk. I would far prefer my google search open a new browser tab. We end up there eventually once we find what we're looking for, and we're left with a useless netvibes tab; in my own job, I'm on google constantly, and the cluttered netvibes dashboard drives me crazy.

        It's very helpful to have the netvibes search linked to google, so that I can keep all my tasks, etc., in one space, but it seems short-sighted and tedious to keep everything within netvibes.

        I'm with anonymous, how does one delete multiple google search tabs????

        Same here, I'm not sure what the purpose a new dashboard for a google search is?

        I've been trying to delete the google search tabs that I no longer use but can't find a way to do it. Help please!
