Well, I never tried Konfabulator, as I didn't ultimately think I'd care about widgets.

Seems to me that JavaScript would be a fairly slow way to implement such a thing.

Guess Dashboard widgets are written in javascript partially. Was Konfabulator written in javascript, or just its widgets?

I believe the program is written in C and C++, and it runs widgets composed of javascript and XML.

Seems like a referral gimmick.

Then, a lot of the widgets so far are referral gimmicks. : (
