OS X Dashboard: Apple’s oft-ignored widget interface — do you use it?

OS X’s Dashboard has been around for almost a decade, a repository of “Widget” mini-apps. Do you use it or do you ignore it completely?

Dashboard is a special app built into OS X that features “Widgets.” These mini-applications combine HTML, CSS and JavaScript to provide limited functionality compared to full-blown applications, but still offer plenty of functionality that’s only a single key-click away. Apple really hasn’t made any innovations to it in years, so it’s easy to ignore the Dashboard. That’s probably why many of us ignore Dashboard completely, though based on my unscientific survey, many of us still depend on it daily. I know I do, which is what got me wondering if and how you use it.
