I’ve talked before about only pushing content relative to it’s domain:
Depending on what kind of personal site/blog you are running, you may want widgets floating all over the place. Heck, I’ve seen some pretty effective sites with only one or two widgets.
But in most cases, widgets only “booger up” a web page. It’s almost like sticking “Intel Inside” stickers all over your computer.
Widgets promote a more cluttered look, often break HTML layouts, and reduce page loading speed.
Oh, and there’s plenty more reasons why they suck.
Any ideas on a solution to this problem? Should sites allow API’s, rather than widgets?
