Widgets are online applications built by one Web site that can be displayed onto another Web site by embedding content in personalized home pages, blogs, and other sites. Widgets may be looked upon as down-loadable applications which look and act like traditional apps but are implemented using web technologies including JavaScript, Flash, HTML and CSS.
