Mesa Dynamics has released new software that converts any Google webpage gadget into a Dashboard widget.
The software, Amnesty Generator, is a free utility that is now available in its first public beta.
This week, Google announced that it was opening its Google Desktop Gadgets framework to web developers. The company will allow its gadgets to be embedded into webpages without needing extra software.
What Amnesty Generator does is to automate the process of embedding this gadget code into locally hosted pages that are implemented inside Dashboard widgets.
Converted widgets can be installed in Apple's Dashboard environment, Mesa Dynamics' desktop widget environment, Amnesty Widget Browser or even converted into standalone Mac OS X applications using Mesa Dynamics' Amnesty Singles.
Amnesty Generator is a Universal Mac OS X application that runs natively on Intel and PowerPC Macs.
