  • Apple's Top 50 Widgets
  • iCal Events
    Displays up to two weeks of upcoming events from multiple iCal calendars.
  • Remind
    For tracking date-based events.
  • Tagbag widget Tagbag is widget that lets you search for Finder info words in files. Very useful if you tag your files with project names, GTD categories etc.

I have made good experiences with the free widget menu application Amnesty, which also enables widgets under Panther (Mac OS X 10.3).

Note: Slower Macintoshes may experience faster system performance with Dashboard disabled. This can be done most easily by installation of the DashOnOff preference pane.

Or by entering some commands in Terminal:

To turn Dashboard off:

defaults write com.apple.dashboard mcx-disabled -boolean YES 

To turn Dashboard on:

defaults write com.apple.dashboard mcx-disabled -boolean NO 

You have to restart the Dock after making either change for it to take effect:

killall Dock
