  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 & 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.
