More Browser Real Estate - Try Prism
« on: September 11, 2008, 07:39:20 AM »
Since Google Chrome's release, everyone has been crying out for screen real estate. Prism[1] from Mozilla is their answer to the screen real estate problem. It allows the user to encapsulate any web application (or indeed any website) they please in a chromeless window running on its own instance. This allows the user to avoid a browser crash shutting down their online app, and allows them to make use of almost their entire monitor for a single webpage/app. It can be run with Firefox or XULRunner.

Prism[1] from Mozilla is their answer

- for Firefox 3 only.

Also:
Quote
Long Description:

Refractor creates a Prism web application from within Firefox. Users can manually create web applications using "Tools > Convert Website to Application".

The extension can also detect embedded web application bundles on web pages and prompt the user to install the bundle.

IMO now that Firefox 3 has been offered through auto-update it is no longer necessary to specify exclusive availability for Firefox 3.

mouser found a stand-alone version of Prism here.

The standalone version of prism is run with XULRunner as I mentioned in my post. I put the emphasis on the browser in relation to Google Chrome as that seems to be what users are craving at the moment. Mouser had mentioned to me his previous post, but recommended I make another in a different context as his never had a reply.
