Prism – Running Web Application on Your Desktop
Have you thought of running your web application in it’s own window? Prism can let you run your web application on desktop without changing the code. Mozilla Labs is launching a series of experiments to bridge the divide in the user experience between web applications and desktop apps and to explore new usability models as the line between traditional desktop and new web applications continues to blur.
Unlike Adobe AIR and Microsoft Silverlight, they are not building a proprietary platform to replace the web. Their goal is to identify and facilitate the development of enhancements that bring the advantages of desktop apps to the web platform.
There are more and more of people are using web applications. But the web application often fit awkwardly into the document-centric interface of web browsers. And they are surrounded with controls–like back and forward buttons and a location bar–that have nothing to do with interacting with the application itself. Prism is an application that lets users split web applications out of their browser and run them directly on their desktop. You do not need to change your web application, you just need to install Prism in order to run your web application on your desktop.
