Snippage is an Adobe Air based cross platform application that lets you create a desktop widget out of any portion of a website. What this essentially means is you can “snip” out any portion of a website say your Gmail account, your Facebook “Update status and recent posts” page or all twitter lovers could cut out the portion of their twitter home pages meant for posting new tweets onto their desktops.
The best part is that the portion gets refreshed automatically, so all your social media will be flowing right in front of your eyes, not by even opening your browser, leave side the thought of logging onto to the website. This free desktop widget creator is similar to the Windows Sidebar gadgets or the Google widgets we use.
Snippage is FREE to download application which works with Windows and MAC and can different usage for different people. Bloggers can keep track of meme headlines eg. tech-meme, tweet-meme, developers can perhaps open an online help section such as MSDN by Microsoft to search easily for any resource. This free desktop widget creating app works with every website and gives you the choice between automatically refreshing the content or maintaining a static copy.
It also provides options between opening a link in a web browser or within the widget itself. The widget automatically hides when you shift the focus to some other portion on your desktop. It can also be a plus for all the XP users who loved the Active desktop feature removed in Windows Vista/7.
