BugMeNot widget for Mac OS X

Almost two months after the idea, I'm proud to present my very first Dashboard widget! The BugMeNot widget:

Yes. I know.

There is a bookmarklet for Bugmenot. FireFox has a plugin. Right.

But! For those using Safari, I think this widget is a god-sent, and a better solution than the bookmarklet. From the micro-site:
This widget allows you find logins for webs that force you to register, using the Bugmenot.com database. Check the BugMeNot terms of use for more information about the service.

By default, it displays the URL of the top-most window of Safari, although you can also type in any URL on the search field. The copy buttons do what you’d expect them to do. However, to save you some clicks, every time you request a new account, the username is copied automatically to your clipboard.

If you try to search a URL without a top-level domain(.com, .net, etc.), the widget will automatically append “.com” to it.
What are you waiting for? Visit the BugMeNot widget site and download it!
