If so, Site Specific Browsers (SSBs) provide a great solution for your webapp woes. Using Fluid, you can create SSBs to run each of your favorite Web apps as a separate desktop application. Fluid gives any webapp a home on your Mac OS X desktop including Dock icon, menu bar, and logical separation from your other Web browsing activity.
How does it work? Fluid itself is a very small application. When launched, Fluid displays a small window where you specify the URL of a webapp you,d like to run in a Site Specific Browser. Then provide a name, click ‘Create, and you,ll be prompted to launch the new native Mac app you,ve just created.
Use Fluid to run YouTube, GTalk, Flickr, Basecamp, Delicious, .Mac webmail, or any other webapp as a separate desktop application.
Anytime you click a link to another site in an SSB, the link is opened in your system default Web browser, keeping your SSB dedicated to the original site you,ve specified.
