SpringWidgets from Fox Interactive Media has started offering Desktop and Web based Widgets, which unique in the time, when many company’s already into the business.

SpringWidgets can be embedded on a website or placed on a desktop. And they are easily shared, so if a website visitor sees a widget they like they can click a link and add it to their own site, or their desktop, or both. That’s an important innovation, and a useful one for websites. For example, a blog could include a widget on the site that shows the RSS feed for the blog. Loyal readers could download the widget to their desktop.

SpringWidgets’ve also released a sofware development kit to allow developers to build their own widgets on the platform. They are also partnering with Feedburner to give those users an easy way to build a widget showing Feedburner RSS feeds. Continue for more info….

You can also find —Widgets from Google Gadgets and WidgetBox or the desktop Yahoo Widgets. Microsoft has a widget platform that will work on the Vista desktop and also on live.com pages.
