Spotlight seems like a step in the right direction but having to explicitly search for data is so passe! I'd love it if they incorporated Dashboard's automatic display functionality.


  • 1. Widgets are just web pages. Apple enhanced WebKit to display frameless transparent content.

    2. There will almost certainly be a system URL interface to Spotlight. If there isn't, it would be really easy to write one.

    Therefore, what I assume you want (a widget showing contiuously updated results of a saved search) would be really easy to do.

  • I suspect what he wants is not so much automatic repetition of a single search, but rather system-wide full-text search capability tied in at the same level as existing functionality for checking spelling.
