Whenever you create a gadget that interacts with the Internet — one that reads an RSS feed or sends data to your website, for example — you need the XMLHttpRequest object. To help you understand how this object works and how you can use it in your gadget, I wrote an article called Interacting With The Web: The XMLHttpRequest Object.
If you want to interact with web pages or files in your next gadget, be sure to check out this article. I look forward to seeing a lot of new gadgets that bring interesting web content to the desktop.
