Enterprise Applications: Mozilla Prism Beta Easily Converts Websites and Web Apps into Desktop Apps
Prism has been available as an alpha project within Mozilla Labs for more than a year now, but Mozilla recently launched it as an official beta and encouraged users to try it out. After taking the beta for a spin, eWEEK Labs found that Prism makes it possible to take any Website or Web application and make it behave as a desktop application. For example, users can convert Facebook or Gmail to desktop applications with Prism and have them run in streamlined browser windows, launch them from the desktop or Quick Start tabs, or even have them start up when the operating system launches. Prism runs on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux systems.
