Yahoo! acquires Konfabulator

I tried Konfabulator last November and really liked it. Unfortunately, it wasn’t free – until now.

Yahoo! said the reason they purchased Konfabulator was that they wanted an easy way to open up its APIs to the developer community and allow them easy access to the information on the Yahoo! Web site. In doing this, Widgets could be built without having to scrape sites in order to get information.

I’m definitely going to start using it again, because I can afford free. Also, let’s look at this a bit deeper: Yahoo acquired Flickr, and that service has only gotten better. I believe they’ll do the same with Konfabulator. Well done, Yahoo…well done.
