Major Update to Prism, First Prototype of Browser Integration

Filed under
Moz/FF

Prism is an open source cross-platform prototype of functionality that lets users split web applications out of the browser and run them directly on the desktop. It is part of a series of Mozilla Labs experiments into bridging the divide in the user experience between web and desktop apps and exploring new usability models as the line between those kinds of apps continues to blur.

Major New Features and Updates

Today we’re releasing a major update to Prism that includes new desktop integration capabilities and simpler installation. With this update, you can now get Prism simply by installing a small extension to Firefox 3. With the new Prism extension for Firefox 3, users can now split web applications directly out of Firefox without needing to install and manage a separate Prism application. Just install the extension, browse to a web app, then select Tools > Convert Website to Application.
