Enough with all the widget specifications already!!

After what feels like a cascade of widget specifications (iWidget, Google Gadget, Wookie) the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is working on a widget specification to unite them all. If you’re interested in stuff like this I recommend this developerWorks article (W3C widget configuration and packaging (Learn about the candidate specification for W3C widgets)).

Good thing is that we’re still talking JavaScript, CSS and HTML so existing widgets should be pretty easy to port if need be.
