    Hi all,

    Ive just been watching the video about gadgets and the sidebar. I found it very interesting. I've recently converted one of my dhtml games to run as a widget on the mac. It worked really well. So I'm pretty excited to see opportunities to make my dhtml games into gadgets. It offers a good alternative to simply running them as webgames.

    I think gadgets are going to be very popular in the future.

    My question is this: will gadgets always use the IE engine (that seems like the easiest option), or will people be able to specify that gadgets use gecko? Anyone know the answer to this?

    Cheers,
    Brent Silby.

    Start.com Gadgets are developed with dhtml and javascript. So no, they aren't tied to IE, unless you author tham that way.
