Search engine giants Yahoo! recently acquired the Konfabulator application from their owners. Konfabulator is an application, which let the users run small applications known as widgets independently on the system. Apple made this concept popular when they integrated the phenomena in their Mac OS X operating system and provided native support for such widgets.

It is still a memory hog. But some widgets are really cool. I like the one with drag and drop for compression and un (de) compression with support for tons of file formats :D

earlier it used to detect gurgaon, india. now it does not. i assume it is due to change of service from accuweather to yahoo's own weather service. not good...

i've used this. but with only 256MB RAM, it slows down my computer to a crawl :(
