Google has just announced a new tool called Web Elements that lets you easily create “widgets” for current news feeds so you can embed them in your blog or website. You can choose the topic you want the widget to “crawl” and viewers will be able to see it regularly updated (for example — ESL & EFL). You can read more about it at this Read Write Web post.
I actually think two other widgets I’ve written about in the past — Daymix and Cruxlux — are better. They appear to basically do the same thing, but also allow content on your specific topic to come from additional sources, and they seem to give you greater flexibility on the size of the widget, too. But I might be missing something.
