22. Using the Dashboard

In This Chapter

• Selecting widgets for the Dashboard

• Downloading widgets from the Internet

• Organizing your widgets

• Creating your own Web Clip widgets

In this chapter, I explain how to select the widgets you want to use on the Dashboard, how to download more widgets from the Internet, and even how to create your own Web Clip widgets.

Waiting in the wings, just off-screen, is the Dashboard with its collection of little utilitarian apps called widgets. The initial selection of widgets is quite adequate, but the vast number and variety of widgets available for download from the Web is mind-blowing.
