Google Introduces Dashboard widgets

by , 10:30 AM EST, February 24th, 2006

Google released three widgets for Tiger's Dashboard this week, all geared towards making various Google services easier to use. They include Blogger, Gmail, and Search History.

Blogger works with Google's blogging service, and lets you create your blog entries without the use of a web browser.

The Gmail widget monitors your Gmail account. Unlike other Gmail widgets, this one can monitor multiple Gmail accounts just by opening additional instances of the widget. This widget ranks as Ars Technica's favorite of the three.

Search History works similarly to Safari's Google search history by showing you your most recent searches, but it takes the concept a step further. In addition to showing your searches, it also remembers what links you clicked on so you can more easily find exactly the Web site you are looking for.
