What are widgets?

I understand the general concept, but is it a download or just something that shows up online? Will applying a widget leave files on my computer?

  • A widget is an application. You will have to approve anything before it is downloaded onto your computer. In Cafemom widgets are safe. They show up on your profile page and are very helpful. Applying a widget will not leave files on your computer.

  • Technically it means the following:

    "In computing a web widget is a software widget for the web. It's a small application that can be installed and executed within a web page by an end user."

  • It adds something to your profile page only. It's a way of personalizing your page.
