Some of the features within Mac OS X are both innovative and rather exciting. Some are based on previous technology and Yahoo Widgets were one of the first suppliers (Konfabulator) to produce a widget-based system for both the Mac and Windows platform. Widgets enabled software developers to produce code that enabled the end-user to search for information, use an application through the system-friendly widget and much more. Most widgets were cross-platform, so could be developed for both the Mac and Windows.
Yahoo Widget Engine 4.01 is the latest version and ships again for the Windows (download available here) and Mac OS X platform. Unlike the Mac widget-based Dashboard, you can drop the widgets anywhere on your desktop. You can find widgets that will show the weather in your area, enable you to find a location through online maps, create sticky notes and much more.
