Active Desktop on Mac OS X

Remember the Active Desktop feature on Windows, that allowed you to put web pages on the Desktop? Since Mac OS does not have built in support for that, you might think that there’s no way for you to get similar functionality on this side of the world. Think again.

Web Desktop attempts to duplicate (some of) the functionality of Active Desktop by allowing OS X users to place any web page on the desktop that can be automatically refreshed after user-defined time intervals, if necessary. Useful for keeping track of your stocks, scores or other news items.

Worth a “dekho” if you really miss that feature from your dark days.
