There was lately a bug reported from w3.org saying –

One e-mail with the right JavaScript in the subject header was enough to take over the recipient’s computer, if that recipient was running the Gmail widget. Google has now fixed the problem in this widget.

Has options of having or not having snippets in the widget, or can show the mails related to only a single keyword.
The .zip file for widget is of 158kb and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later version of Macbook.
