Why didn’t I know such a cutie exist before? It also come along with many cuties. The name of that cutie is “konfabulator” and said cuties are called “widgets”. Okay… here is what konfabulator is :

Konfabulator is a JavaScript runtime engine for Windows and Mac OS X that lets you run little files called Widgets that can do pretty much whatever you want them to. Widgets can be alarm clocks, calculators, can tell you your WiFi signal strength, will fetch the latest stock quotes for your preferred symbols, and even give your current local weather. What sets Konfabulator 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.
I found it newly coz konfabulator was acquired by Yahoo these days. So now Yahoo is giving it away for free which was 20$ worth before. That’s why I downloaded and playing with this new toy. BTW, they also have konfabulator history cartoon which made me smile. Beware! It is quite addictive. You will be busy browsing widgets and trying one after another. Links: Related: My previous toy.
