How do you describe something that can do just about anything?

That’s a pretty apt quote and Konfabulator is definitely one of the coolest MacOS X apps I’ve seen in a while. In a nutshell Konfabulator is an application that acts as a backend for floating graphical widgets that are created via a combination of xml, javascript, and image files grouped as a bundle file. The supplied widgets include a calendar, stock ticker, to do list, weather monitor, AirPort signal monitor, picture frame (rotates pictures from your images folder), iTunes remote, a couple different clocks, and a battery monitor. On top of that there are already several third party widgets available on the Konfabulator website as well. Time to brush up on my javascript I think!
