    Pretty basic question: How do you install Dashboard Widgets? Or, to be more specific, what is the proper/best way to install Dashboard Widgets? Thanks in advance!

    p.s. - I guess why I ask is, I'm wondering if there's a specific folder you are supposed to install them to? Or do you just put them in the 'Applications' folder? I kinda don't like the idea of mixing Widgets with 'Apps', but I'm just wondering what's typical?

    Generally I just double-click. It'll bring them up in the dashboard and install them on its own. It'll put it in the right folder for you.

    Using the scissors icon in Safari (top left of browser beside the bookmark button) will do the same for webpages.
