DashOpener is probably my favorite new widget. It eliminates the need to display the Widget Bar to open a widget; instead, DashOpener lists all installed widgets—system and then user, each in alphabetical order (see Figure 3). You click the name of the widget you want to open and it opens. Click it again and another copy opens. All without dealing with the Widget Bar.

If you think DashOpener takes up too much screen real estate, collapse it by clicking the triangles. Click again to expand.

There's nothing to configure, but if you turn over the widget there are some instructions. To refresh the list after installing or removing widgets, just click the triangles on the front of the widget to collapse it, and click again to expand it.

DashOpener is by Lasar Liepins.
