how cool is this?

One of the new features of Safari on OS X Leopard is the ability to create a Dashboard widget from anything you like on the web. Apple calls it a ‘web clip’ and I used it to do this:

This is the twitter entry box from my twitter homepage, floating in my Dashboard as a widget. (Note the cool looking torn edges look!) So I can now update my twitter from Dashboard, directly to the twitter homepage, without opening an internet browser of any kind. Pretty nice.

Of course, you don’t have to use it for twitter, you could use it for a blog, a search window, comics, whatever you like.
