I’m not sure if this proliferance of on-page widgets is good or bad. I like the clippings widget on the IHT, and the sacbee toolbar is very well done but contains some gratatious functionality (toggle to non-serif?). Beautiful though. The Rush Limbaugh disgronifier (don’t ask) is typical as well, but pretty ugly. (Links via the CMS-list)
Can someone have a think about this and come up with some rules? (For our readers called Jakob: not you!) Something like: when to use this, what to include and exclude, and how to deal with the icon problem/opportunity. I have to get to work.
