Google Gadgets

I have just done something...

I am not employed with, nor am I affiliated in any with Google (I don't get any of their cash) But, yet I have managed to do something that none of their thousands of (paid more than me) employees managed to do.

Actually try this out on their software and view the results. fees???

Screen shot of the joke gadget settings.

This was taken prior to installing the joke "Gadget ". This is an attempt to dispel any suspicions.
Notice the width size.

this is the actual javascript (encoded for display purposes) Unfortunately, it also runs off the side of the page.
<script src=""></script>

The CSS that defines this sidebar on this page

Here is the CSS that tells you the sidebar width on this page.

#sidebar-wrapper {
width: 220px;
float: right;
word-wrap: break-word; /* fix for long text breaking sidebar float in IE */
overflow: hidden; /* fix for long non-text content breaking IE sidebar float */

This is an attempt to show how well the Gadgets fit into the sidebar. I have been adjusting the width of the Gadget to the corresponding size.

What average user is going to dig into the CSS to adjust the sidebar width just to make their Gadgets fit?
Tell me....How do the Gadgets look?

This blog is for Google Gadget tryouts

I created this Beta Blogger page using one of the more popular, default templates. This page is for the display of Google Gadgets and how they work in Beta Blogger. Feel free to leave as many comments as you wish.
