Yes, and there are three ways to do it:

Run the Amnesty browser

Run in DevMode

Run the widget in Safari

Amnesty is a 3rdparty app that emulates a dashboard

DevMode is a mode in which you can move widgets out of the dashboard

1. Just drag a widget in dashboard
2. hit your key (F12 on US keyboard?) for hiding the Dashboard
3. drop your widget
4. here you are!

To get it back into dashboard do the same! (drag from desktop & drop in dashboard)

Widgets for activating DevMode:

I suggest the first one, miniDevMode. (OK, I admit. I made it, and I'm biased, but I do think it looks better. They do the exact same thing.)

I've two things to say:

1. LOL!
2. Agreed!
