It may be the ‘Wikipedia’ of widgets and gadgets but Widgipedia is undoubtedly cool in it’s own right! A library of widgets for any desktop, operating system or web page. Similar to Wikipedia, Widgipedia relies on users to generate content, allowing members to develop and upload widgets. Developers tag, title and describe their widget and browsers can look through a gallery, Most Popular widgets, rate widgets and even !
To some this may seem like a waste of time – merely playing with toys and gadgetry. However, what excellent time saving and useful gadgets some of them are! Among the favourites are:
Easy WiFi Radar that “helps you scan for and connect to open wireless access points with a single mouseclick”
Clear Sidebar With Extras XP a “clear sidebar similar to Vista’s one. Many shortcuts including a bin, media player, search and documents”
Search Web 2.0 Websites finding “new generation websites (web 2.0) for all types of services by using Google Coop and popular startup review sites”
There are weather, photo and game widgets! Search, shopping and astronomy widgets! The worst that could come from visiting Widgipedia is that you may suddenly want every widget – even those you never knew you needed!
