Making Your Own Widgets
If you frequently visit particular web pages, you’ll be thrilled to hear that Leopard enables you to stick them right in your Dashboard so you can take a quick glance at them any time. It’s very simple to turn your favorite web pages into Dashboard widgets, and you do it right from Safari.
In Safari, type the URL of the web page you want to turn into a widget.
Click the Web Clip button.
Select the area on the web page that you want to include in your widget.
Click Add; the new widget opens in Dashboard.
