I know that widgets are bassically small web apps so I think it would be a great addition to your site to have working copies of the widget that you can "try out" from within Safari. This function would allow users to see what the widget does prior to down loading it. This would also allow users that don't have Tiger to bookmark the page and use the widget and see if its worth upgrading to get dashboard.

Regards,

Mike

It might work for some widgets, but a lot of them use special dashboard-only commands which stop it from even loading in Safari.

Great...this site can keep staying one step ahead of the Apple guys Lol.

(Something about the ability to 'test use' a widget before fully downloading and choosing to keep or discard to come in next OS upgrade, methinks I read, ya?)

Sorry that got garbled.

It's the cheese in the air, after all. 'Tis the season!
