Today I reveived an email from Mesa Dynamics, a privately held software development company specializing in innovative desktop applications, regarding the free utility for Microsoft Windows Vista that can convert hundreds of available Google gadgets and other web widgets into Windows Vista Sidebar gadgets.

Web widgets, such as the popular Google gadgets, are mini-applications that are packaged in HTML code and deployed on personal web pages. Amnesty Generator converts this web widget code directly into Sidebar gadgets, allowing the web content to run natively in Vista without the need for a hosted page. Amnesty Generator includes an “Autofill” feature and step-by-step instructions to simplify the conversion process.

The official Vista Sidebar gallery doesn't have good quantity of useful gadget/widgets as compared to the other widget application galleries like Yahoo Widget Engine or Google Desktop Gadgets.

This converter will resolve this complaint. :D
