Yahoo frees Konfabulator

— 11:43 AM on July 25, 2005

Yahoo has purchased the company that makes Konfabulator, the widget software for PCs and Macs. There's an explanation on the Konfabulator website, and as part of the deal, Konfabulator is now a truly free download:

Let's just get this out of the way... Konfabulator is now free. Yup. If you download version 2.1 you know what you'll never ever see? That's right a registration reminder. Fear not, there's nothing sneaky in there, no spyware, no ads, nothing that's keeping track of information and sending it to us... it's pure, uncut Konfabulator goodness.
Nice. The plan is for Yahoo to help stream info to the various Konfabulator widgets.

Now, I'm going to have to go download Konfabulator and see what these widgets are all about. I understand they look purty, but I'm curious to see if any of them are really useful.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
