Google Gadgets

Google released a new version of the Google Desktop yesterday which included the new Google Gadgets. These are very similar to Konfabulator Widgets and can be docked to the Google Sidebar or float on the desktop.

My three favorite gadgets so far are gdpMetrics, which tracks website statistics; ShareIt, which lets you copy and past files, text and links to your Google Talk friends; and Adsense Status, which lets me track when people click on my ads and make me a little money. There are hundreds of gadgets currently available, and Google has released an API so thousands more should be available shortly.
