Google Desktop has a fun sidebar feature that can be used to show off Google widgets. However, this is only available on Windows.
Erica Joy (I think she works for Google) figured out a simple work-around. Well kind of.
Since Firefox can load any web page in the sidebar, she said that you just have to put all your favorite widgets in the left column of your Google personalized homepage, then bookmark it, get the bookmark properties and check the ‘load in sidebar’ box. That’s it.
It’s simple, it’s easy and yet none of us thought of that. 😉 Check out Erica’s blog for more detailed information.
