I stumbled upon this nice new program from mozilla.
Prism is basicly a program that lets you open a certain website application or website in a window through a short cut.
A picture from the prism website says it all.
The program is still under development but I used it without any glitches.
This is one of those webapplications replacing offline programs things we hear so much about. It looks great.
You could do the same for lots of things like: hotmail, ebuddy, google calendar, chatsites, facebook, …
You can download the linux prototype version here.
*note: the icons on the desktop and awn are custom icons downloaded from google images.
I found a icon pack for gmail, hotmail and yahoo mail. These icons are perfect to use as icons from prism email accounts. The icon pack can be downloaded here.
