Netvibes, a very popular Ajax home page product that I said was a Web 2.0 Company I couldn’t live without, will announce seed funding by Index Ventures, Marc Andreessen, Pierre Chappaz (founder of Kelkoo and Wikio) and Martin Varsavsky (founder of Jazztel, Ya.com and Fon). The size of the round was not disclosed.
Over a million home pages have been created on Netvibes, and the service is available in a ton of languages. They are working on an API now that will allow for third party widgets to be created as well.
Netvibes is headquartered in Paris and London. My original post on Netvibes is here.
