These widgets aim to provide useful information from web sites without having to fully parse their HTML and reload them every time. Just a mouse-throw away.

This is free software. You are free to use these widgets without any charges for as long as you want. If you feel generous, your donation of $5CAD, or any other sum, will help me improve the existing widgets and create new ones.
