Google is continuing its recent efforts to streamline products by axing its messaging and collaboration service, Google Wave, as well as six other products. Google halted support for Wave more than a year ago, but the firm claims in a blog post that it will scrap the service completely in April 2012. Among the other discontinued products are web content collaboration tool, Knol, and its Bookmark lists service. Google CEO, Larry Page, pledged a cleanup of Google’s products upon his arrival as company head in April, to focus on services such as social network, Google+, in an activity he described as putting “more wood behind fewer arrows".
