    I would of definitely join this if i was an opera developer.

    @Salwa, you don’t have to be an Opera developer. You only need to know web development. Opera widgets are basically just open web standards packaged in a specific way.

  3. Daniel says:

    Yeah they are like Opera add-ons except there isnt as many so heres a way for mor to be created.

    There is a really easy to use tutorial with code on the Betavine website, so check out http://www.betavine.net/bvportal/web/guest/widgetzone/fortune_widget_tutorial for more details.

    They are NOT like Opera add-ons at all. They are widgets, which basically means open web standards packaged in a special way. W3C is standardizing widgets packaging too.

    What’s with the useless and retarded comments from ignorant fools?

    You are aware that this is the internet, right?

  7. Kev says:

    On that same Betavine website they have a short description of what is a Mobile Widget, useful guide for people wanting to know more.


    Also they are offering developers a chance to publish their Widgets to a wider audience (developers retain the IPR in the above competition).
