Yahoo Adds Flex (and Flash) Support To Widgets

Yahoo announced a new version of their Widget runtime that adds support for HTML and Flash based widgets. According to InfoWorld, developers can also use Flex to write widgets that will run on the Yahoo Widget platform.

I went to the Yahoo Widgets site and tried to install a few widgets on my Mac, but couldn't find out how to install the actual Widget runtime. Let me know in the comments if you have more luck than I did.

This is great news for Flex developers - its another possible runtime for the applications that are being built, meaning another output on top of the browser and the desktop (using Adobe AIR) that you can hit without having to change your code.
