When are you going to actually become a member? Then you can edit your posts yourself

Edit: that threat advisory gadget looks mint too. It was dead easy to make, although, they send the RSS feed as text/plain unfortunately, so the mime type needs to be overridden in order to get a proper XML response...

I suppose the only preference it would have would be how often to check?

OK. Well - I've implemented it. I'm not sure if the search filed will end up supporting putting in our own things in the popup menu (like categories in XFactor etc). If it does (I haven't seen any documentation on it as yet, so I don't know), then your idea will work well. At the moment I've just made a drop-down of my own so you can choose the type of search and it pops up the result page in Safari.

I'll post a link to it soon (probably in the morning). It needs Safari 1.3 or Tiger to work though.

Chris,

whatever you want it to do...

see, we designers... make those mockups... just to get coders like you interested... then coders like you must suggest the right functionality for the gadget.... and then you ask for some modifications so the design can fit your well tested code... you already know that...

you said it is hard to fit my idea... bring your idea... or suggestion.. and i will design it... ( if it was easy to design )

i just wanted a Google search using the Google categories ... i usually do a lot of Google image search... can not do it from the Google bar in Safari... must do it from the Google site... it is annoying.. because it is few extra mouse clicks.... and waiting until the Google image search page loads...

i also wanted a small footprint for this gadget... did not want to show the Google categories as buttons or radio buttons.... or so...

bring up your idea....

two brains are better than one....
