- automatically updates the Info, based on your preferences; manual refresh possible

In the default view you’ll see a countdown timer telling you when the next refresh will happen at the top of the widget, on the right hand side is a button to do a manual refresh. Click the timer to see the date of the last refresh. Just below is a house-icon and your current network location. Click the house to change your location.
Below that is for every (active) network interface an icon for the interface and the assigned IP. Click the icon to toggle the expanded information.
At the bottom of the widget is your “real” Internet IP. Click the globe-icon to see a list of your last IPs and the ping results.
There are many options in the preferences. There you can choose from 3 different skins, supply some email addresses so the widget can send you a notification if your IP changes, and other options.
Whats New in this Version
- Added more information like proxy settings and gateway-pinging
- Option to also display the inactive interfaces
- Detects if your Mac was asleep and does a refresh
- Notifying IP changes is now done by the new plug-in and is thus much more reliable
- Better animation and other layout improvements
- Now supports double-byte chars as location names (many thanks to Warren Liu!)
- Fixed the animation bug
- Dropped IPv6 and Broadcast address; it’s of no use at the moment
- Wrote a help text on the back of the widget
