I needed to do something specific, and NS Category Widget just provided me with the simplest, direct solution I could find. Big thanks to Nilambar Sharma for this one!

Great addon, simple and well done. Does exactly what it says it does! And that's about all that's needed from a category widget. An easy way to show specific set of category from whatever parent and depth, show post counter, hide empty cats, fonding lists - just about anything. I'm actually surprised how hard it was to find something like this. Well done, author!
