Default Customize your Google HomePage, now with widgets

Google as many of you know allows you to create "Google" acounts, and "Google Home Pages" well they have brought the customization a little further by comming out with a API to allow you to add Widgets to your Google Home Page, much like those people that use mac's have, along with people that use Konfabulator. Kinda nice if you use google homepage for yourself.

Googles own article about it

Build your own Google homepage

The personalized homepage was created to bring together the stuff that interests you from across the web. From an engineering perspective, this became an opportunity to create a framework for all types of content and information. Supporting RSS and Atom feeds was one step in that direction, and today we're excited to start supporting richer web apps as well. With the Google Homepage API, developers can now create modules for the personalized homepage. It's designed to be flexible and easy to use, and you don't need to download anything to create a module. To get the ball rolling, the team's created a few modules to add to the directory. So check these out and get started creating your own.
