"Prism": aus Web-Sites Desktop-Anwendungen machen

Nach Adobes "Integrated Runtime" (AIR) hat jetzt auch Mozilla Labs eine Technologie, um aus Web-Sites Desktop-Anwendungen zu machen. "Prism" erlaubt, für eine bestimmte URL eine doppelklickbare Anwendung zu generieren.

Today we are pleased to announce the release of the beta version of Prism 1.0. It’s the culmination of more than a year of real-world use by companies like Yahoo! Zimbra, DesignLinks International and many others.
Tens of thousands of end users have installed Prism-enabled sites. Based on their feedback, as well as the experience of website creators, we’ve added new features to bring the user experience of web apps even closer to that of their desktop counterparts.

With the release of Prism 1.0 beta we are ready to start fostering an ecosystem that makes it easier for developers to create and distribute compelling web app bundles."
