A very nice idea. I just wish the widget were smaller. It's not like that space is needed for the results which are presented on a web page anyway. But as it is I have a hard time fitting it on my already crowded dash.

I agree. It's way too big. It doesn't even need a title.

Otherwise quite functional, although it would be nice to not have to leave the dashboard for results.

OK. I'll make it smaller and let people know. I think it will always take people to the page. One of the issues is that the parsing engine is very CPU intensive, and so it's preferable to get people to come to the actual page.

That was much better. Thank you. It's good to have a little "furiganizer" sitting handy on your dashboard.

Broken in 10.4.2.
Sorry I'm working on a fix for this and will post an upgrade soon.

Now upgraded. Download the latest version, and use 10.4.2 and all will be fine.
