Waste of time. Doesn't work. Sill for MU to keep it listed here as it only gives them a bad name.

Is there a newer version of this? The version here is PPC and from 2005; please update the description, e.g. to indicate that this widget is for pre-Intel users only, as an alternative to MacUpdate Desktop, etc. ... thanks!

It's broken even on PowerPC. It keeps on cycling until it eventually stops trying to load. I think it's been this way for the past year or so... I can't remember the last time I used it because of that.

Just downloaded.
Nevertheless it doesn't work (macbookpro 15" intel core 2 duo). If I don't understand quickly if it can work, I'll remove it.

When will a Intel only or universal binary version of this widget be made available?

Do we have to worry about Intel/PPC with widgets? I thought they were just glorified web pages?

That may be, but why put it down as Platform : PPC if indeed it is not?

It's pretty well done. One suggestion is that there be a "popular" view so I can see what's being downloaded by other people.

I second this comment about adding a "popular" view! The popular page is the page I visit the most, so if this feature were to be put into the widget, I'd use it a lot more.

Even without it, though, it's still a good widget. :)

this not being updated anymore????
Also needs updating with a couple of features i'd like: for one, perhaps only being able to view "free" programs rather tha shareware/etc/etc. I'd also like to increase the window size to my own prefered size. And what about just displaying the program name, with the description appearing when u hover the mouse over the name? :)

Good widget tho - thanks MU :)
