Top-10 most popular widgets

A popular feature of start.me is the support of widgets. There are quite a lot of widgets available, but which are most popular? In this blog, we explore the widgets start.me users like best.

The two most popular widgets on start.me – it can be no surprise – are the bookmarks and RSS widgets. Of all widgets created, 72% of them actually are a bookmarks widget. About a quarter of all bookmarks widgets is set to icon mode, either small or large icons. Ever since custom icons were introduced, about 20% of  all bookmark icons have been personalized. RSS widgets make up for another 18% of all widgets created by users.

These are the remaining 8 widgets:

  1. Weather
  2. Notes
  3. GMail
  4. Google Calendar
  5. Embed widget (to embed custom content)
  6. Facebook
  7. World clock
  8. Analog clock

  1. Nice graphic!

    Well, now that we know which widgets are the most popular, I hope you can fix some bugs with those 2 widgets:
    Bookmarks widget: when adding bookmarks I change its title sometimes and saved them that way. However, some bookmarks update & overwrite my title edit, and use the website’s updated title. I have to re-edit those. Kind of annoying.
    Webfeed widget: some feeds don’t refresh as often as desired. I used to test a same webfeed in Mozilla Thunderbird, Netvibes & start.me. start.me is the one who got the worst results, especially in the mobile interface. I have to manually refresh a feed widget to get latest articles/news. Annoying as well.

    Hope you can fix those.
