I don't undertsand why this widget is so huge. All you need is a search bar that expands to show the search results. Also, a wifi network monitor is completely unneeded as there are several others available that are smaller and therefore take up less dashoard space. I'd love to see a more simplified version of this widget in the future. Until then, I'll just be searching via their website. Thanks anyway.

Useful, but don't click the 'Map' link or you'll be forced to endure an awful talking movie ad - selling PC products no less!

Had been hoping for the UB version for a long time, but this version keeps crashing every time I try to install it (MacPro 2.66/Tiger 10.4.8).

I installed it and it works with no issues, even found some hotspots near my home that I did not know about.

Thanks. Tried a fresh download, turned off all other widgets, restarted, installed Jiwire, still crashing...
Must be an incompatibility with something I have running. Too bad, and I haven't enough time to do more testing.
