BBC widget

by coelomic

I recently updated to X.4.2 and one of the fringe benefits of this, is being able to play around with the new widget manager. Now that it is much more safer to download random widgets from the web without the fear of hackers taking over, I began to checkout various widgets on Here is one that caught my eye. Bright, colourful and well designed, it very much fits in with the rest of the OS X UI. Did I mention that it is a breeze to use and me being on dial up, found it to be much less of a bandwidth hog than having the BBC radio player open via Safari.
