Sure Apple’s default widgets are nice, and very Aqua-licious, but we want more. Here are some nice, free 3rd party widgets:
Keep track of your unread feeds from the best web-based RSS reader.
3 word film reviews. Straight, to the point and on your Dashboard.
Glance at your Dashboard for stats on your CPU load, memory and network usage.
Find wireless networks. Based on macstumbler.
Post bookmarks to your delicious account. That’s it.
National Weather Service Doppler maps. Anywhere in the US? You bet.
Track RSS feeds (like ours) with this little widget.
Post directly to your Blogger blog, right from your Dashboard. Think less before you post.
Watch webcams on the Dash. Its configurable too.
Use this free application to get a warning before Safari automatically installs widgets. If you’ve upgraded to 10.4.1, you may not need this.
Sounds like a job title, but it’s really a preference pane. Use it to enable/disable widgets.
Using Panther? Use Amnesty to load Dashboard Widgets. You’ll need 10.3.9 and not all widgets will work, but it’s much better than nothing.
Panther and Windows users will be interested in the new version of Konfabulator (not free but worth the cost).
Ahh, that was fun. I expect your Dashboards are so full they’re virtually worthless. That’s the spirit!
