Prism on Linux a way to turn any Web site location into a Desktop application

I was googling for some cool features to enrich my Google desktop while I found an applicaiton whichis said to be helpful.
It’s called Prism and is a Mozilla Lab experiment project. Actually it’s nothing special.
It creates a simple window in which it can visualize a website making it look exactly like your desktopapplications.
It has a couple of possiblities like creating a desktop icon for your website, enablesome kind of navigation keys, show status messages on what’s happening on the desktop embeded application andshow navigation bars.
The project is said to be a revolutionary next step towards integrating the webwith your desktop
. You can check out Prism’s website further on On mozilla’s prism website . It might be interesting for you to check out Prism in action before you might go for a try on Youtube here .
Prism is both available via Firefox extension or a desktop application both of which provides you with the describedabove prism functionality. As a Debian user you might wonder if prism is available as a debian package, well there is one
, even though it’s not a release part of the offician debian package distribution. If you’d like to test prismvia it’s debian package use the following prism deb package
,anyways the downside of using the 0.9 debian package is that you won’t be running prism’s latest release.
If you’d like to be running the latest prism version please download it from mozilla’s website.
Well enough talk let me tell you my personal view on Prism. It’s a COMPLETE BULLSHIT! 🙂 I don’t see how any geek wouldhave benefit of the app neither, how does it bridge in the web with the desktop.
It’s simply a crap that could takeof your daily lifetime to install and review 🙂
