What sets Yahoo! Widget
Engine apart from other scripting applications is that it takes full
advantage of today's advanced graphics. This allows Widgets to blend
fluidly into your desktop without the constraints of traditional window
borders. Toss in some sliding and fading, and these little guys are
right at home in Windows XP and Mac OS X.
The format for these Widgets is completely open and easy to learn so
creating your own Widgets is an extremely easy task.
For the "skinning" crowd, Yahoo! Widget Engine is a dream come true. You
can easily change the look, feel, layout, even functionality of a Widget
so that it matches your lifestyle, your desktop, or the pants or skirt
you have on that day.
