Beta 3 of Mozilla Prism 1.0 has just been released and it is probably a good idea to answer a question that is probably in your mind right now: What is Mozilla Prism again and why would I need it?
Mozilla Prism is offered as a Firefox extension and standalone application. It can basically turn a website into an application so that the website is untied from the web browser.
There are a few advantages but also disadvantages of using Prism to run websites in their own application window instead of running them in the web browser.
Advantages include increasing the stability of the system as the single application window is no longer affected and affecting the web browser window. The other is unaffected from crashes or other problems.
The application window is also inheriting all the benefits of programs including the ability to run them at system startup or minimizing them in the system tray.
Prism is available for Windows, Macintosh and Linux computer systems. The extension’s add-on page has not been updated as of now and the last version of Prism that is offered there for download is not compatible with Firefox 3.6 yet. It will take less than 24 hours for the page to be updated with the latest version that is compatible with Firefox 3.6
