Introducing Prism

With the Christmas break coming, I have more time to surf the web and one of the "new" discoveries I made is a project from Mozilla Labs called Prism.

Prism is a way of integrating web applications on a desktop. It essentially creates a we browser window that does one thing -- access a single website and present it to the user as a desktop application.

At first, I was skeptical about it but when I used prism to create an "app" that shows me a compact view of my Gmail account, I was hooked. Now I plan to create another one that will show me a compact view of my Google Calendar. These compact views are ideal for the cramped screen of the Eee PC.

Prism is available for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Hi There,

First of all, great blog! I've learned a thing or two reading it daily. Thanks!

Now here's a problem I hope you can help me with: OpenOffice menu fonts. Don't you find them a bit too small? Is there anyway, anyway at all, to increase their size?

I hope you can help me. :)
