Widgets on demand with Webwag

widgets on demandThere are many great AJAX start pages out there like Google, Netvibes, Pageflakes and yourminis , but none of them have what Webwag has going on. Stemming from site feedback, Webwag has developed Widget on Demand, a new tool that allows users to easily create and design widgets from any web page. Users were hard up to find a way that they could easily view content from sites that did not provide RSS feeds for their news service, so Webwag stepped up to the plate. The WOD tool is easy to use: just click "Add new content" from under the Webwag logo, type in your destination URL, select the area that you want your widget to display, and there you go. It does tend to cut content off, and can really only be used for areas that constantly update and change text in the one area you have selected to display. It's extremely simple to make a widget, and very useful if you utilize start pages and want to add content for sites that do not provide RSS feeds.
