I've been searching for some free bitcoin widgets to use on my desktop and could find any that were free. Due to security reasons, I dont trust opening up my PC to an app that could be used to compromise my wallet so I found a better solution.
This program allows you to take a snippet of a website and have it displayed on your desktop. Since its the real website - only smaller - you can have things like bitcoin monitor and bitcoincharts displayed and constantly being updated without taking up all your screen real-estate. Here's a screenshot of my desktop showing the activity of bitcoin monitor and bitcoin charts price for bitcoins. http://img849.imageshack.us/img849/3739/desktopep.jpg
