Gadgets/ widgets

Gadgets or widgets are miniature objects that offer cool and dynamic content that can be placed on any page on the web. Gadgets might come in handy when you're at work (to-do list, currency converter, calendar), at school (calculator, Wikipedia, translation tool), or just passing time (news, blogs, games).

Technically speaking, a web widget is a portable chunk of code that can be installed and executed within any HTML-based web page by an end user. Most widgets have a media-rich graphical interface that becomes visible once the code is successfully installed on a web page.
