Konfabulator widgets now in Yahoo! stable

The Konfabulator widget gallery is growing in popularity as more widget makers contribute their widgets, ranging from cool tools and utilites, incorporating RSS, webcams and the like to utterly useless and cute or geekie widgets. The ratings and numbers of downloads give useful clues. Some of the lowly rated widgets still have high download figures! Lots of widget fans must be keeping watch on the gallery judging by the numbers of downloads for some widgets within 24-48 hours of posting to the gallery.

The Loosley Coupled blog provides some thoughts on Yahoo's purchase of Pixoria and acquisition of Konfabulator for the ability of widgets "to feed live information directly to the desktop, bypassing the browser."
Download Konfabulator 2 for Windows or Mac from the Yahoo! Widgets site.
