Dashboard Annoyance

DashboardMoreWidgets.pngThe Dashboard Widget Manager Apple introduced in Mac OS X 10.4.2 is nice but I also think they made it less obvious how to find and install new Widgets. Before Mac OS X 10.4.2 there was a button called “more widgets” which took you to the Dashboard Widget Download site. This button appeared when you clicked on the “plus” sign located in the right bottom corner of the screen.
Now, this button was removed and replaced with a “Manage Wigets…” button which has exactly the same functionality as the new “Widgets” icon in the widget bar which make the widget manager appear. Now, the user can click on the “More Widgets…” button because it was relocated inside the widget manager. That’s not very intuitive or efficient to me.
