Widgets are getting hot with each passing day, and more and more companines are getting into the business. Widgets not only look nice, but are compratively far easier in installation, than their counter part “Plugins”. Widgets are mini-applications that run within Web pages. Users easily add widgets to blogs, social networks and personal websites, no programming knowledge required. They have become the foremost method for users to personalize their blogs and web pages.
MuseStorm, a recently launched currently in private beta company —”offers the first Widget engine and distribution service that enables publishers to professionally syndicate their content to millions of blogs, social network users and personal websites.
Using MuseStorm’s service publishers can:
- Create widgets from existing content (RSS/XML based data), no programming required
