Kludget Engine is a widget engine for the Windows platform that enables Windows users to run MacOS’s Dashboard widgets. Although Kludgets Engine draws inspiration from MacOS’s Dashboard it brings some of the better features from Yahoo’s Widget Engine, Microsoft Gadget, Google Desktop, and Opera Widgets.
Kludgets Engine is based on Webkit, just like MacOS’s Dashboard, ensuring compatibility with widgets made for MacOS. Kludgets Engine uses HTML5, supports the canvas tag and SVG rendering and animation. This makes the engine capable of running Yahoo Widgets, Opera widgets and even Netvibes EcoWidget. Both Opera and Netvibes has some really great widgets in their collection. And so does Microsoft, Google and Yahoo.
