Grouping Feeds in Google Personalized Homepage

Google's personalized homepage has tabs, but what if you want to group related feeds even more? Feeds in tabs is an official Google gadget that lets you read multiple feeds using tabs. Unlike the regular way of reading feeds, this gadget displays the date of each item and a summary.

The idea is interesting and you can add multiple instances of the gadget. But it would be nice to let me give a name to each tab, instead of using "Feed 1", "Feed 2", etc. and also to change the name of the gadget to reflect the content of the feeds. Google should implement this as an option in IG and let you add feeds using drag and drop.

This gadget uses a new feature of Google Gadgets API, so you can now include tabs in your own gadget easily.
