Remember Konfabulator? It’s an application for running widgets, similar to those found in OS X 10.4, Tiger. It works a little differently that Apple’s version, but in many ways it’s the same. The most significant difference is the widgets run on top of the desktop at all times, instead of on-demand like Dashboard’s widgets It’s also cross-platform, meaning they make it for PCs too.
Anyway, Yahoo! announced today that they have purchased Konfabulator. The one big change… it’s now FREE! If you’ve recently purchased it, I believe you’ll be getting a refund. Rumor has it that they will continue to develop the Mac version also. That’s always a fear when software changes hands. More information is available on the Konfabulator homepage.
