This widget does not work at all for me. It installed without any "Show country" and "Visit" buttons, and there does not seem to be any way of seeing the other side, as in the case of other widgets. I do have MacOS X.4.4. So what could be wrong? If there is something you have to do to make it work, could you not include something more than screenshots on the information page?
Best wishes

It will work on any Mac with 10.4 or newer installed as well as a internet connection. For instructions, please flip the widget.

Easter Island is probably not listed because it is a Chilean territory (see http://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/factbook/geos/ci.html for confirmation).

What's to say?
Slick little widget.

(i was a bit surprised that with some of the obscure islands in the database, Easter Island wasn't one of them.)

Bob, Northern Ireland is not a country, it is six counties in Ireland

Ireland, very brief background:

"Celtic tribes arrived on the island between 600-150 B.C. Invasions by Norsemen that began in the late 8th century were finally ended when King Brian BORU defeated the Danes in 1014. English invasions began in the 12th century and set off more than seven centuries of Anglo-Irish struggle marked by fierce rebellions and harsh repressions. A failed 1916 Easter Monday Rebellion touched off several years of guerrilla warfare that in 1921 resulted in independence from the UK for 26 southern counties; six northern (Ulster) counties remained part of the United Kingdom. In 1948 Ireland withdrew from the British Commonwealth; it joined the European Community in 1973. Irish governments have sought the peaceful unification of Ireland and have cooperated with Britain against terrorist groups. A peace settlement for Northern Ireland, known as the Good Friday Agreement and approved in 1998, is being implemented with some difficulties."

Northern Ireland (Ulster)is part of the United Kingdom and as such is not part of the Republic of Ireland.

Correct. Technically, the UK's full name is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

I like the new features. However I would have liked it even more if the ? and +/- buttons had been in the black frame and not on the map itself.
