http://www.mindofward.com - Over the last few weeks, you have heard me speak extensively on free online applications that you can use in your Web browser. Well, now you can take those online applications and convert them into desktop applications! The software is called Prism, and is currently available for free download at prism.mozilla.com. It is available both as an extension for the Mozilla Firefox web browser, or as a standalone software application. For the sake of this demonstration, we'll be using the Firefox extension version. All you have to do is click "Add to Firefox" and the automated installation process will add the extension to your Web browser. After the extension has been installed, go to the Web site of your favorite online application. In this example, I have chosen Facebook. Go to the Tools menu, click "Convert Website to Application", configure the parameters of your application, and hit OK. It's just that simple.
