I know most people don't use it, but I am not happy to lose Apple's Dashboard when we get the next osMac version. I find it handy for keeping things I periodically want to check without needing to use a bunch of different apps or go to multiple webpages.
For example, right now if I go to Dashboard (via hot corner on the computer screen), I can see the weather forecast for several locations on Oahu (whether can vary significantly from place to place here). It also shows a calendar and a unit converter.
I also use it to take parts of web pages to view. For example, I have an hourly weather forecast that includes winds speed (including wind gust speed), wind direction, and chance of rain at each hour. Very important for me when bike riding. And it updates every time I go to Dashboard automatically.
Since Dashboard won't exist soon, I can see two main alternatives (if they exist). One would be an app that lets you do the same things. Instead of using a hot corner to bring up Dashboard, it would just require selecting the app.
Another alternative would be if there was a browser that let you set up a webpage that you sort of paste in similar info from other webpages so it would all be in one place.
Anyone know if either of these things exists?
