    I'd like to hear about the many different ways people are using the Web Clip feature of Leopard.

    I'll start, I use it to track the price of items that I'm selling on eBay. It stops me having to login and check.

    I'm also using it for the latest Dilbert comic strip.

    How do you use yours?

    One checking the Unsanity blog for an update on Leopard compatibility of APE

    I'm also waiting patiently on an Urban Dictionary posting to be allowed.

    Easy access to information about the next nearby train/bus departures and delays.

    I use it to run a php script I wrote to give me the point value of food (weight watchers). I also use the same page on my iPhone - works great when your at a store, restaurant etc.

    At the moment I've got it showing the 5 day BBC weather for london. I used it for a webcam for a while.

    I really didn't think it'd be much of a feature but it's brilliant, I've found it very useful.

    I was going to use it for local movie showtimes, but then I found the new Movie widget. So I don't have any use for web clip feature yet.

    I haven't found a good use for it yet, mainly because it doesn't let me alter the size of the clips.

    Aloha Osarkon,

    I use it to display the latest User Friendly and Joy of Tech online comic strips. On Sundays, the User Friendly strip expands to three times the normal size (as the actual strip is larger than on other days) in my dashboard with no action necessary on my part. From what I can gather, the content displayed on your dashboard will automatically resize in conjunction with any resizing of the original content. You have to remember to reserve enough space so that you don't cover up any of your other widgets, however.

    Which is why I don't like using them. I did try having the Ctrl Alt Del latest comic on, but it just took up too much space.

    My First instinct was to say - BBC? England? You guys dont watch Football!?

    But then I got out of my American Shell and thought... he meant Soccer :D :p

    Anyway, I use mine for Fedex Tracking #'s. It updates the status automatically without me having to put in the Tracking # and finding it all the time. Its really a nice feature.

    I have a widget that does that for me. It supports a wide variety of couriers and also supports growl notifications, I find it indispensible. :D

    Here's a link for anyone who's interested.
