Dashboard Widgets in the browser sidebar

May 27, 2008

sidebar screenshotRunning iPhone web applications in the browser sidebar becomes more and more popular. And it makes sense because the iPhone and the browser sidebar share the same small width restriction.

Therefore we made the little tweaks to optimize our mobile desktop for the sidebar of Firefox and the Opera panels.

How to run in Firefox sidebar:

  • Open http://m.widgetop.com?ForceOnDevice and bookmark the page
  • Open the properties for the just created bookmark and check Load this bookmark in the sidebar
  • You might want to move the bookmark to the bookmark toolbar for quick access

How to add to Opera Panels:

Just click this link.
