Mozilla Prism!

I was reading John’s blog today and spotted a link to Mozilla Labs. I’ve always liked some of the Google Labs projects and an avid fan of both Firefox and Thunderbird – so what better way to see some of the things that Mozilla have got on their minds.

I’ve only read about one project before I’ve started typing, but already it strikes me a something remarkably simple but such a good idea!

Prism notes that:

Personal computing is currently in a state of transition. While traditionally users have interacted mostly with desktop applications, more and more of them are using web applications. But the latter often fit awkwardly into the document-centric interface of web browsers. And they are surrounded with controls–like back and forward buttons and a location bar–that have nothing to do with interacting with the application itself.

So Prism will let you add these applications straight into your Start Menu (an eBay Application link, a Facebook application link etc.)

You can see the benefits for some users already! Is anyone using this?
