Widgets are lovely and all, but the yahoo widget engine is a HUGE memory hog... I wouldn't personally advise anyone to use it.
I don't cosider it to be huge, maybe this is just me. Granted most widgets are really no use at all, they are good though if you want to customize your desktop.
I just made a cool solar system widget, AstroTwister!
OK, the widget is in beta right now, so it's only for the really brave!! but it's running on my machine as I'm typing this, so the bugs aren't that bad.
BTW, it runs under yahoo widget engine 3.1.4 and I haven't tested it elsewhere, so have fun!!
Go here to download the latest version of the widget, and enjoy!!
Keep checking back as I'm developing new versions all the time!!
My AstroTwister widget is now at version 1.5!!
Go here - to download the latest version and review bug fixes and new features.
I'm really proud of this widget!!
If you are a developer then you should mess around with widgets. As was stated before...it really does help you learn these langauges, and its FUN!
