Yahoo Widgets allows the end users to add numerous widgets to its computer, which can in turn give them access to up-to-date information and weather forecasts, or work as a clock, calendar, quick searching tool, or perform just about any other task that you can think of. This famous desktop enhancement program already supports more than 4000 widgets that can expand the functionality of all operating systems between Windows XP and Windows 7.
Yahoo Widgets started its life under the name Konfabulator, which changed after Yahoo bought its development team and integrated this powerful widget engine into its popular ecosystem of online aps and services. Between 2005 and 2009 Yahoo Widgets managed to attract large user base that used this great app for bringing many useful tools on their desktop – from system management, sensor readings, clocks, calendars, RSS feeders, Webcam viewers, dedicated timing apps, time zone calculators, battery sensors, calculators, and more. During those years developers from all around the world had ability to integrated their apps with the powerful Yahoo Widgets API and offer their products on Yahoo Widgets listing pages.
However on March 2 2012 Yahoo announced that Yahoo Widget Engine and Yahoo Widget Gallery will shut down in its entirety, with wish to move all of its users to the newly announced Yahoo Connected TV widget platform.
