Embed sites in Google Wave with Iframe Gadget

Google released a new third party extension called “Iframe Gadget,” — “when you insert this gadget, you (and anyone else in the wave) can specify the URL of a webpage, and the gadget will render that site right inside the wave. It works best with webpages that provide an embed code, like Google Maps, and fill all the available screen space. Here’s how to embed a Google presentation in a wave: First, click “Share->Publish” on the presentation, then copy the URL from the Iframe code there and paste that into the Iframe gadget, making sure it’s tall enough to show the controls. Even if the site doesn’t give you an Iframe embed code, you can still try embedding the page URL and see how it looks. To get started with the IFrame gadget, sign into Google Wave and install it from here. Additionally, if a site gives you a snippet of code that uses an “<embed>” or “<script>” tag (equating to a Flash or JavaScript widget), you can use the HTML gadget, by the same author, to embed that site in a wave. To try that one out, install it from here,” explains Google.
