Many at the XWidget forum are eagerly awaiting for the new version, we’ll just have to continue to see if the new version release will arrive on time.

Personally I’m looking forward to the new version. XWidgets potential is something to put faith in. It really can help your desktop enhancement experience.

If you have any interest in learning how to make your own widgets (yes, you can create your own style of widgets, with XWidget) for your personal computer system, you will have to have a little bit of knowledge with “JavaScript Code” (.js, if you are going to create a heavy resource widget.

But, you still can create and or run the default widgets without any .js file.

I tested XWidget with the online virus scanner , over a dozen anti-virus engines
passed the freeware program. However, when I installed it onto my system, AVG detected XWidget as a virus. I allowed the program to install, knowing this was a false positive.

For now what we have is version, you can get it here –
And if you like you can download the Star Trek Starfleet Folder Launcher widget I created for my new collection of personally made widgets.
