It's been a while since I've looked at widgets. In the past (Konfabulator and now Yahoo) the widget files were ".widget". The widgets on this site are ".wdgt". Do I need a different widget engine to run these?

Hi, well like the site suggests you need "Dashboard" in order to run "Dashboard Widgets" which comes with OSX Tiger when you download a widget it will auto install and open in the enviornment or you need to run "Amnesty" which runs on OSX Panther, thats it, hope this helps!

When I downloaded a widget I only got a zip file. I extracted the contents into a folder. Nothing installed and there isn't an executable in the zip. Did I miss something?

Yes, you need a Mac to run Dashboard and any widget on this site.
