New Spider Customization Page

Now you can customize the spider before adding it to iGoogle or embedding it to your webpage.

The background image option is not working from the customization pages when adding the gadgets to iGoogle. It doesn’t seem to like the forward slashes and the semicolon.

Spider Gadget Update

The spider is now able to stop and rest when it gets close to your mouse. After a few seconds of mouse inactivity, he resumes crawling around randomly. It can also turn in place toward the mouse and move backwards if the mouse is too close. You will also notice the spider now has a cephalothorax (head).
