Userplane WebChat 2 Widget Now More Social

December 4th, 2008


Userplane and Meebo have been competing with their Chat Widgets for months now and every single time that it looks like Meebo has made a good advance over Userplane. they usually get pwned by Userplane harder. this time around is no exception. just after Meebo recent Hearst Deal. it comes from Userplane that their WebChat 2 Widget will now be Social.

What does that mean?. it means you will be able to use it in the Top Social Networks. the ones first supported are MySpace, Facebook, Friendster, Hi5, Bebo, Ning and Flux. That pretty much cover the Top 5 Social Networks plus the Top Commercial Social Network and The Top Social Network Provider.


This move will be a huge blow to Meebo`s Community IM party and now it will have to catch up to Userplane yet again.

The last updates to WebChat  2. are sure in need of a new look to the Widget. so i will get to that soon enough.

Userplane Gas Pricing Widget To Look For Cheap Gas

November 24th, 2008


I have seen that the Price of Gas is now lower in the U.S.A. that is because right now they are using national reserves and because it is being a little subsided even if not fully on the record. i know because this made foreign Oil to tank since U.S.A is not consuming like before. this is not to last and Gad Prices could go up any time in the future. but even if they don`t. gas price cuts are not happening everywhere.

So what better than a Cheap Gas Price Widget to find the best Gas Prices?.

This Widget from automotive is of a very standard fare but counts with Clearspring Launchpad for High Spread Sharing. that means you can get it everywhere you want it (blog, social network, desktop). so save some dlls and give it a look using the “Grab it” button on the widget. the only thing is that it does includes a very jumpy Widget Ad. but aside from that it is a good widget.
