A couple of minutes ago I went to Google, but instead of the usual I was presented with an overlay asking me to make selections to customize an iGoogle home page. The only way to close the overlay was to make a selection. I chose the default theme as I already have an iGoogle page and was able to get back to the search box. Is this new?

I haven’t been able to reproduce this. As you can see in the image I was not signed into iGoogle, but I had the iGoogle generic page loaded.
Has anyone else seen this? Is Google starting to aggressively push personalized search.
