Yay or Nay: Google Gadgets

Share

It’s Yay or Nay Wednesday, and this week I’m looking at the new and improved Google Gadgets.

For the uninitiated, they’re a set of mini web applications that can be plugged into any website by its owner, in order to do a variety of things like display news and weather, games, web 2.0-ness, and so on.

Previously they were available for the Google Toolbar and Desktop, but now they should work on any web page on any web browser.

But have we had enough little add-on widgets and gadgets? Will they add value to a webpage or just be another distraction? Do we really need hundreds of people putting PacMan on their site (cool though it might be the first time)?

Google Gadgets: Yay or nay?
