How to Have Your Widget and Use It Too

So you’re running Mac OS X Panther (10.3) or some flavor of Microsoft Windows and have been drooling over Tiger’s (not so) new Dashboard feature. Well there is no need to drool anymore, because you can have your widgets and use them too. Konfabulator is now free. For those that don’t know, Konfabulator was the original cross platform widget platform from whom some claim Apple appropriated the concept.

Konfabulator was recently purchased by Yahoo! and subsequently released for free. There are thousands of free widgets available at their Widget Gallery. A couple of my favorites, besides the included weather widget, are: TVScaper, Wunder Radar, and ShortStat.
