What is macOS Dashboard?
Dashboard is an application for Apples Mac OS X operating systems, used for hosting mini-applications known as widgets. First introduced in Tiger, it is a semi-transparent layer that is invisible to the user unless activated by clicking its icon in the Dock. Alternatively, the user can invoke Dashboard by moving the cursor into a preassigned hot corner, or by pressing a hot key, both of which can be set to the users preference.
Discontinued since macOS Catalina.

Dashboard was, at one time, pretty awesome! Unfortunately, somebody decided that it had to go, so Apple stopped emphasizing the Dashboard Widget pages, somehow managed to allow the information sources for some of the still-working widgets to be removed, and just left things a mess, sadly. I think the Weather widget was first to go, but there were a few other weather widgets that used something other than Yahoo or weather.com, so that was good ... but now the stock market widget has decided to go to sleep until somebody figures out how to access another data source. Thankfully, a few of them still work, like the scientific calculator I downloaded that doesn't rely on external data sources, but I'm sure those will die in the not-too-distant as well. Dashboard widgets. They were great while they lasted, and the Notification center just doesn't cut it for many.
