> Abstract: This document lists the design goals and requirements that a
> specification would need to address in order to standardize various
> aspects of widgets. Widgets are small client-side Web applications for
> displaying and updating remote data, that are packaged in a way to
> allow download and installation on a client machine, mobile phone, or
> mobile Internet device. Typical examples of widgets include clocks,
> CPU gauges, sticky notes, battery-life indicators, games, and those
> that make use of Web services, like weather forecasters, news readers,
> email checkers, photo albums and currency converters.
>
> Introduction: A widget is an interactive single purpose application
> for displaying and/or updating local data or data on the Web, packaged
> in a way to allow a single download and installation on a user's
> machine or mobile device. A widget may run as a stand alone
> application (meaning it can run outside of a Web browser), or may be
> embedded into a Web document. In this document, the runtime
> environment on which a widget is run is referred to as a widget user
> agent and a running widget is referred to as an instantiated widget.
> Prior to instantiation, a widget exists as a widget resource. For more
> information about widgets, see the Widget Landscape document.
