After playing with Google desktop gadgets for a while, I decided to implement support for Web gadgets first. Much easier to do plus covers 90% of interesting functionality.

Yesterday got the first result; google clock is running on dashboard. Well, almost running, gadget size is wrong.

Lot’s of updates and bug fixes.

Lately I am spending most of the time on implementing OSX style dashboard and support for google gadgets. Google or Vista sidebars take too much space on screen and provide constant distraction. Old style windows active desktop provides similar functionality, but it requires hiding all apps (which seems like a destructive action).

Last week mydock dashboard displayed the first picture. To be continued.
