The Frog Goes "Widget. Widget. Widget."

Actually, as everyone knows, frogs go "Ribbit." Disgusting creatures. However, I'm not here to discuss these horrid amphibians. I'm here to talk about widgets, those useful little bits of code that sit quietly on your computer desktop, doing their job, be it providing the weather report, your daily list of things to do, or the annual schedule of meteor showers. There are many widget engines, but Yahoo is up there with the best and, you can trust them not to do anything untoward with your computer.

If you haven't tried them out, you're missing out on some very cool and very useful desktop enhancements. If you'd like to give Yahoo Widgets a whirl, click here.
