"How does one check to find out if a widget is safe to use?
do a google search on the widget to see what people are saying about it. malware attracts a lot of attention, especially in the mac community.

you can usually determine from the first page of google result, often without clicking on anything, whether a program is unsafe, buggy, or useless.

Thanks, TMR - that's one way to deal with it - wait and see. Works for me.

Still interested in other ideas.
