Kitco Precious Metals Quotes
Developed for the Yahoo! Widget Engine, Kitco Precious Metals Quotes is a tiny app that shows you the current metal prices, together with other useful information, such as changes compared to their previous values. It is easy to install and set up.
The interface of the program is represented by a small frame that you can move to any location on the screen, with the help of the mouse cursor.
So, you can view the current price of gold, silver, platinum and palladium, whether it has increased or deceased, changes, along with their highest and lowest value to date.
The upper part of the screen shows the time and date for the latest update. Clicking a metal reveals a graphical representation of its evolution.
A few customization settings can be modified from the Widget Preferences panel. Therefore, you can select which metals to display, along with the update interval. The widget can be enabled to automatically update the chart. Plus, it is possible to resize the display panel, as well as to refresh the data.
Thanks to the default options provided by the Yahoo! Widget Engine, you can make the frame stay on top or below all the other windows, ignore mouse events and prevent dragging. Last but not least, you can adjust its opacity level between 20% and 100%.
The tool does not put a strain on the computer's resources, as it runs on a very low amount of CPU and system memory. It has a good response time and works well, without causing the Yahoo! platform to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. To sum it up, Kitco Precious Metals Quotes should meet the requirements of all users who want to be up-to-date with the latest metal prices.
