Metro Sidebar for Windows 8 If your looking for a sidebar in windows 8 and miss your gadgets on desktop, then Metro Sidebar is for you. Its a real nice addition to windows 8. MetroSidebar is very interactive and comes with lots of tiles, this widget is still growing and more tiles will be added to the program, its nice and smooth and very slick. At the moment it offers weather, battery info, clock, Bing search, power, alarm clock, picture slideshow, computer shortcuts and a few more. I think it wont be long before twitter, facebook and stock exchange will be added.
