Widgets… an easy and fun way to manage your daily activities. They can be used for a variety of functions, including alarm clocks, weight loss guides, news aggregators and many more. Of course, you may need a system that can help you manage all of your widgets, which is where Yahoo! Widget Engine comes in.
One of the major advantages of the service is its impressive graphics, which not only look nice but also provide a clear environment for displaying your widgets. Users can also enjoy a number of different skins, allowing you to completely customize your widget engine to suit your own personality.
The various widgets are all run from one program, the Yahoo! Widget Engine, although when they are opened they each appear as individual windows on your computer. Although this makes it easier to focus on one particular widget at a time, it does mean that widgets can soon begin to clog up your computer and take up space. It’s really just a matter of personal preference – if you don’t mind having a number of widgets open at once, then it is a good system to use.
