    iStat Pro is a must. You can get it through the Dashboard "More Widgets" button.

    Definitely a must have. You can get that and search for cool widgets on Apple's Site

    What about FireFox

    I use FireFox for browsing. Maybe that's a nice app to download.

    It doesn't do anything other than look like a lava lamp. A waste of resources IMO.

    oh...blah

    i'd rather have useful stuff taking up dashboard real estate. how do you do a screenshot? It might be cool for people to post screenshots of their dashboard, so you can see how everything is laid out....just a thought

    Actually, there's a widget to help you with that too. Screen Shot Plus. I'm not sure if that does screen shots of the Dashboard but I'll try when I get home and back on my MBA (I have it here but I'm leaving soon).

    I just found Delivery Status the other day. It's now a must-have widget for my Mac. It's so much easier to just open my dashboard to see a package status than to go into my inbox, find the email containing the tracking number, etc.

    MacBook.

    iMac is basically the same, except for the space between widgets is bigger due to larger screen.

    Here's a shot of my dashboard. I like to keep it nice and tidy.

    How do you get the scrolling bars in your webpage widgets?

    They aren't webclip widgets. These are actual widgets that I develop.

    They are all available to download here.
