What is Yahoo! Widget Engine?

The Yahoo! Widget Engine is a special program, also known as a run-time environment, which allows users to run widgets on the Macintosh and Windows operating systems. Widgets are mini-programs which run on the desktop. The program provides users the access to a wide array of internet services at their desktop in an up to date fashion.

Yahoo! Widget Engine contains more than 4,000 widgets that are neatly organized to offer live updates and up-to-date information of things like weather, games, web cams, radio, scoreboards, calendars, mood rings, and € among many others. In addition, the program provides a feature that can quickly bring all open widgets to the top of the desktop. It also offers a feature called dock, which shows all widgets with representative icons. This feature helps users manage their widgets with buttons to close a widget, show a widget's preferences, and reveal a widget from the head-up display. Furthermore, the program has a flexible application programming interface (API) based on JavaScript with many useful features. These include text-areas, images, and timers. Other features include the ability to download webpages from the Internet, as well as file input/output, and animator objects to aid in visual effects.
