Netvibes
If you wish to use a Netvibes page, click the green "Add content" button at the top of the screen. Clicking on "Essential widgets: will provide several screen of popular widgets from which to choose.

Also, click on "Browse categories:." Set the drop-downs to "United States," "Recently popular first," and "Applications." Choose from each of the categories the widgets you wish to have. I have found that some widgets will be listed on the screen which are no longer available.
