Yeah we get that question a lot. Widgets are simple, fun, and useful applications that can be embedded on a webpage, blog, or social media page.
Chances are you've already seen widgets, and recognize them, even if you don't know them by name. Ever seen a countdown to an event on a co-worker's blog? A YouTube playlist on your wife's MySpace page? Then chances are you've seen a widget before.
Widgets are great because they allow you to easily create customized content with no coding knowledge necessary. If you can type text and choose colors or images, you can make a personalized widget in less than five minutes. Seriously. You can also look through the thousands of developed widgets in our gallery to find fun and useful widgets to install. Browse by tag, topic, or featured lists.
