Remember Konfabulator? Well Yahoo! has finally gotten around to changing its name and in the process has updated some of the widgets that didn’t seem to work really well with Konfabulator 2.x. Yahoo! Widget Engine 3.0 has all the Yahoo! branding you’d expect and make sure you opt out of some default Yahoo! check-boxes during the install or you’ll replace whatever search engine you are currently using. The new updated Yahoo! Maps Widget works well on my computer and it is very simple to use (just type your search string in the box and hit enter). You can download it from their new site.
