Wow! Wonder how Apple will react to this! (Hopefully they won't file some lawsuit! :p )

Well, considering Apple lets you run widgets in *Safari* in Panther (and even with transparent borders in 10.3.9 and Safari 1.3), hopefully they won't mind too much. I somehow doubt the impact of this as an excuse to not get Tiger will be nearly as great as the positive impact on widget development...it sounds like it will be a really nice add for developers! :)

Thats so cool. Unfortunately the most useful widgets are those that apple makes. Most of the third party ones are just fun things. I really useful one I found though was the package tracker.

So far so good for me too!
I really like the Konfabulator widgets, so I'm debating purchasing that instead. I don't know which takes more processing power. Anyone out there who knows?
