Google this week delivered three widgets for Apple's Dashboard feature found in Mac OS X, which provide access to Blogger, Gmail and Google Search History. Dashboard runs mini-applications that reside in a separate layer of the desktop and can be called up with a quick hotkey or mouse movement.

The Blogger widget allows for quick posting to Google's Web log service, while the Gmail widget lists messages in the inbox. The widgets were created by Google engineers during their "20 percent time," in which they are free to work on projects of their choosing. The company is also currently recruiting new Mac developers.
