Please size your widgets appropriately, this is far too big - by any stretch of the imagination.

Apart from the size issue and lack of any decent design or creativitiy, it works.

sandsl,
This was a quick and dirty widget that I did only because someone requested it.

I know it's big, I'll change that when I get around to properly testing the plug-in I've written to copy the address to the clipboard.

Thanks for letting me know what you think of it though, you've given me a reason to bother changing it.

Hi,
Would it be possible also to display host name by doing a reverse lookup on IP adress ? below the ip or instead of the IP ? Perhaps a setup of widget to allow to display IP and/or hostname smiley
Thanks

Great Widget!!!

I've been waiting for this one since installing Tiger on Friday Night. One thing you may want to consider... I believe if you used http://checkip.dyndns.org for the lookup, your results would be faster.

Thanks for this!

a feature i would like to see implemented is a copy to clipboard on click

but thats just an idea (i like the update! now you just need to fix the icon in widget tray (to match the new look)
