I personally think it looks pretty decent.

Andy, I like this widget but unfortunately it appears to be broken in the same manner as the Wikiwidget.

Multi-word look up fails for both of these widgets. For example try querying "La Blue Girl", "Oakland Tech", or "da fat rat wit da cheese" with the Urbanidget. The same behavior occurs with Wikiwidget when searching queries such as "Steve Jobs", "Black Metal", or "William Shakespeare".

Generally, upon entering a text string in either of these widgets, the text is erased, the target website is not loaded and Dashboard stays in the foreground. However, the correct and expected behavior occurs with any single word search.

Aside from that, these are both great ideas for widgets. I like the orange design of the Urbanidget actually because like your Wikiwidget, it harkens to the website it is querying. Thanks.
