One Widget API to rule them all?

Netvibes' Widgets can now be used on almost all platforms. Netvibes' Widget API is taking a first step on the direction of merging all widget APIs and is actually becoming the "universal" widget API.

For now, the offer on "universal" widgets is still limited, as only around 1000 of the more than 90,000 widgets available can be used on iGoogle, Apple Dashboard, Opera, Windows Vista and Windows Live. But soon, a great percentage of the Netvibes widgets will be available on this universal format.

Also, support for Yahoo Widgets is expected to be included in the future.
