Nice! This saves me a lot of time. There are two things I would recommend you to do:

1) Save the user settings as a preference, so one does not have to select the options from the back every time dashboard is started.

2) I think you should get rid of the i button, and somehow (using your creativity) come up with another way to flip to the back.

If you have any questions, consult your good friend Google.

Actually the preferences are saved since the first version of the widget. I can check this again, but at my mac they are saved.

What's the advantage of this widget over the "add to google bookmarks" bookmarklet?
Maybe this widget makes it easier for other services, but for google bookmarks, I don't find it very useful.
However, the widget could be useful for people who use multiple browsers, as it apparently always calls the default browser, which can be logged to the account used for bookmarking, whereas the browser from which the widget is called can be logged off, or logged to another account.
