Just like there are people that seems to love Toolbars and get enough of those, there are other who love to use sidebar for everything.  in this case a iGoogle Sidebar sound like a actually good reason to use one. if you have screen state (1400×900+) and you use Firefox as your Main Browser that is.

This is the iGoogle Gadget Sidebar and it comes as a extension for FireFox that will format your iGoogle Gadget into their small forms and in a single scrollable column in automatic form.

This results in a good way to be able to check your weather widget have your Google services at a very close reach without having to keep your iGoogle startpage in a tab all day. The iGoogle Gadget Sidebar works with most of iGoogle Gadgets and it is such a good idea that there should be a option for Iron and Chrome where it makes even more sense to offer it. would be great to have in IE8 for that matter, so if i see it elsewhere, i will post on it.

It has been quite a while since i wrote about Widgetop and their Web, and Mobile Widget Startpage but that is because not much really has changed with them. they do got more widgets now (287) and they work well. but one of the odd things is that they still not support IE. even considering that IE8 has been out for a while now.. but one of the things i missed to post was that they now got something for those in the Mac and that use the Mac Dashboard widgets.

A universal Google gadget wrapper that goes in a Mac Dashboard widget. this means you can bring the gadgets you have in your iGoogle Startpage to the desktop.
