This requested feature since the early days of netvibes is now available. Instead of deleting a widget, you can decide to archive it and store it in your personal Activities Timeline. The widget will be saved with its parameters and you will be able at any time to restore it. There is no limit to archiving, it’s unlimited. Yes unlimited !
