If you area a Firefox user a useful Firefox extension has been created called WebRunner that will allowyou to convert almost any web application in to a standalone application you can then run on your desktop. Including web based services such as Gmail, Google Plus, and even the game Angry Birds.
Once installed you can customise your application by tailoring options, including enabling and disabling basic browser-style functions, save locations, removing status bars, and picking out your own icon.
WebRunner (formerly Mozilla Prism) is a platform developed by Salsita Software using the same technology that underlies the Firefox browser. It makes it easy to turn web apps into standalone desktop applications.
The WebRunner application will now allow you to access web apps from the Applications folder and Dock on your Mac or access web apps from the Start menu and taskbar within Windows. To give WebRunner a go for yourself you can download the Firefox extension from the companies website.Filed Under: Technology News
