i have about 7 going:
Converter - handy when tv shows mention impreial mesurements or distances
cricket scores - got it during the ashes
stock market US one - interested in a few US shares - WWE and Apple
Aus.Tv - no need for a tv guide anymore
degrees down under - when i need to know the temp - mostly when yanks are talking about how hot it is over there
appletalk - extremly handy one this one :)
and album art - looks up album art for your currently playing itunes song

Tejas :: Are you using AusTV or WorldTV? AusTV is quite old now. WorldTV has a quite a few new features (including version check to make sure you're up to date) and more efficient code.

Permanently open for me:
Address Book
Calculator
WikiPedia
Apple's Weather widget
Oblique Strategies
Multi ISP Usage Meter (Thanks Luke!)
Countdown Calendar
AppleTalk
WorldTV
HardStat2 beta :)
SpeedStat2 beta
Battery Hen beta (on the PB)

Some other cool ones I have installed and like:
Froggster
Unit Converter
Banana Warehouse
Sensis (if it were a tiny bit better, it'd get a permanent place)

couldn't do without...

World TV....so very very sweet...thanks islayer and marc :)

Gpeek....gmail peeker

MailPop... another gmail peeker but for another account. Strangely if we used the same widget with two different accts...it would sometimes peek on the wrong account. this one also talks when a new mail comes in.

and standard weather widget. (haven't worn a bikini in winter since)

we use others like itunes widget and sing that itunes (lyrics widget)...but not permanently.

hey also... does anyone know if anything came of the petrol price widget?

I used to love Gpeek, but now Gmail have released the Gmail Notifier for mac, so that one got trashed. Now my favourite one'd have to be WorldTV. Couldn't do without it!
