WidgetWatch: W3C Widgets 1.0 Working Draft

A quick widget note. Ajaxian says the W3C wants to stop the widget madness and put some standards around the whole space:

Arve Bersvendsen of Opera let us know about the new working draft from the W3C: Widgets 1.0.

Everyone and their mother have created their own widget specifications, and now as a developer you need to make choices. Do you want it to work on Dashboard? Google? MSN? Yahoo!?

If the big hitters supported this widget standard then we could write once, widget everywhere. Kinda :)

Maybe someday writing widgets will be as easy as creating web sites!
