    Up until this morning I was using Google classic to view my iGoogle
    page on my G1 now however I cannot navigate away from the mobile
    version. I hate the mobile version. Classic worked so well on my G1. I
    could navigate through my iGoogle tabs via a drop down menu. I could
    click on a link to close the feed. It was awesome and now its gone.
    What happened? How do I get it back?

    So don't bother suggesting that. It does nothing for my iGoogle.

    I am almost certain you guys are using "steel" as your browser. If you use the stock browser that is built in to the phone you can easilly get the classic google pages up. I have just tested this, and I get my iGoogle in classic view no problem.

    Ahh I hear you say, I want to use steel, why can't I do this in Steel? Well I have just found the solution for you steel users too. Go to the menu, and in the settings change the "user agent" to "desktop". This will get you your "classic" iGoogle page

    I wish that was the problem, but I'm using the stock browser.

    Update: Just tried it and it worked. Don't know why it didn't before, but it does now. Although, iGoogle takes days to load in classic view on my phone. Skilcraft, I'd say try it again.
