The software is a multi-lingual RSS/Atom feed reader, local weather forecasts, a calendar supporting iCal, bookmarks, notes, to-do lists, multiple searches, support for POP3, IMAP4 email as well as several webmail providers including Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail, and AOL Mail, web storage, Delicious, Meebo, Flickr photos, podcast support with a built-in audio player, and several others.
A page can be personalized further through the use of existing themes or by creating personal theme. Customized tabs, feeds and modules can be shared with others individually or via the Netvibes Ecosystem.[2] For privacy reasons, only modules with publicly available content can be shared.[3]


The company was founded by Tariq Krim and Florent Frémont in 2005. In August 2006, Netvibes closed a funding round of €12 million led by Accel Partners in London along with Index Ventures. Since May 2008, Freddy Mini is the Chief Executive Officer of Netvibes. On February 9, 2012 Dassault Systèmes has announced[4] the acquisition of Netvibes for an undisclosed amount.
