Hypercube moves web widgets to desktop

web widgets on the desktop

Mesa Dynamics has posted a beta of Amnesty Hypercube, which is designed to "free" Google Gadgets and other web widgets from the confines of a web browser to the desktop. Not to be confused with Dashboard widgets, web widgets are tiny applications -- often snippets of HTML code -- designed to be inserted in blogs or other web pages. Amnesty Hypercube allows these widgets to be launched from within Dashboard or from the desktop.

Mesa Dynamics says Hypercube uses an iTunes-like interface that includes a directory with bookmarks for 175 providers of web widgets, which can be explored from a mini WebKit browser inside the application. Users can copy and paste to add new widgets, and drag-and-drop them into social networks including MySpaceand Facebook.
