DashOpener is an alternative to using Dashboard's own Widget Bar to access your widgets. DashOpener provides you with a smaller and quicker interface to the widgets you have installed. Now DashOpener also lets you manage your widgets right from the dashboard (activate/deactivate widgets or move them to the trash).

It lists all installed Widgets by name and opens them when you click the widget's name. When you don't need DashOpener, click on the title and DashOpener will minimize to take away as little space as possible. Customize the number of columns and the width of columns to suit your needs.

I have used this for years. One of the best Widget managers available in my opinion despite its age. Seems to be compatible with everything I have thrown at it. Being a widget itself it does not conflict with any other apps. As a widget you manage your widget from within the dashboard. no need to launch pref panes or apps. Seems fully compatible with Snow Leopard. While the developer notes an occasional GUI glitch on their website, this does not interfere with its operation or stability. I had lost it when doing a reinstall due to something else and did not find it again till recently as it had (until now) been dropped from software listing sites. I accidentally found it again today and MacUpDate has been kind enough to relist it in a very timely manner. Thanks MacUpdate for allowing me to share this great find with the Mac Community.
