I'd bet good money that most Desktop gadget developers could recognize and understand this code snippet:
var obj = new ActiveXObject('WScript.Shell');Those days are over, as the latest Google Desktop release added an API for opening a URL in a browser:
framework.openUrl('http://desktop.google.com/');This is documented in the 5.5 release notes, but we wrote this tip in case you missed it. :)
