Introducing Prism

Mozilla

1000+

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.

Transition550

Mozilla Labs is launching a series of experiments to bridge the divide in the user experience between web applications and desktop apps and to explore new usability models as the line between traditional desktop and new web applications continues to blur.

Unlike Adobe AIR and Microsoft Silverlight, we’re not building a proprietary platform to replace the web. We think the web is a powerful and open platform for this sort of innovation, so our goal is to identify and facilitate the development of enhancements that bring the advantages of desktop apps to the web platform.

The first of these experiments is based on Webrunner, which we’ve moved into the Mozilla Labs code repository and renamed to Prism.

Prism

Prismlogo400

Prism is an application that lets users split web applications out of their browser and run them directly on their desktop.

Refracting550

Prism lets users add their favorite web apps to their desktop environment:

Startmenu550

When invoked, these applications run in their own window:

Googlecalendar550

They are accessible with Control-Tab, Command-Tab, and Exposé, just like desktop apps. And users can still access these same applications from any web browser when they are away from their own computers.

The Best of Both Worlds

Prism isn’t a new platform, it’s simply the web platform integrated into the desktop experience. Web developers don’t have to target it separately, because any application that can run in a modern standards-compliant web browser can run in Prism. Prism is built on Firefox, so it supports rich internet technologies like HTML, JavaScript, CSS, and <canvas> and runs on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

And while Prism focuses on how web apps can integrate into the desktop experience, we’re also working to increase the capabilities of those apps by adding functionality to the Web itself, such as providing support for offline data storage and access to 3D graphics hardware.

Comparison550

The User Experience

We’re also thinking about how to better integrate Prism with Firefox, enabling one-click “make this a desktop app” functionality that preserves a user’s preferences, saved passwords, cookies, add-ons, and customizations. Ideally you shouldn’t even have to download Prism, it should just be built into your browser.

Prismui

We’re working on an extension for Firefox that provides some of this functionality. For more information about the user experience we hope to achieve in Prism, see Alex Faaborg’s blog post. For some of the technical details and new features found in Prism, see Mark Finkle’s blog post.

Getting Started with Prism

We have an early prototype for this working today on Windows, with work continuing on Mac and Linux (for which we should have builds available soon).

To try out the prototype, download and install it: Download Prism for Windows.

Then start Prism. It will display an Install Web Application dialog.

Prism08500

Enter the URL of the application you want to use in Prism (e.g. mail.google.com), a name for the application (e.g. Gmail), and pick where you’d like to create shortcuts to the application.

Then press the OK button. Prism will create shortcuts to the application in the locations you specified and then start the application.

How to Get Involved

Prism is just the first of many experiments we hope to conduct around improving the usability of web applications. It’s open source, like everything we do, and we’re interested in hearing from and working with anyone interested in further developing this concept.

  • Discuss, debate and add to the design in the forum. Report bugs in Bugzilla.
  • Get the source code, extend it, fix bugs and/or submit patches.

    The project lead for Prism is Mark Finkle and contributors include Cesar Oliveira, Wladimir Palant, Sylvain Pasche, Alex Faaborg, and Myk Melez.

    You need to modify the all.js file in the greprefs file. For example I use a automatic proxy and hence my values were something like.

    // My Profile settings
    pref("network.proxy.type", 2);
    pref("network.proxy.autoconfig_url", "http://host/something.pac&quot;); http://www.yagmurtanesi.org http://www.ikizsohbet.com

    suggestion— "mailto:" links clicked in firefox should always open in my prism window. this way, I can make a gmail prism window my main email client.

    This seems oddly familar to the Google Chrome Applications. If you are using google chrome and you have a web app that you like. Lets for instance say Gmail. You would go to Gmail.com (or mail.google.com) and you would click on the page button and click "Create Application Shortcut" you would then choose where you would like the app shortcut. Then you can open gmail in a regular window. You can contact me herehttp://goo.gl/bFcx on facebook.

    Bug:

    When I have Prism enabled, if I briefly switch my default browser to Opera, Firefox gives me NO way to switch it back. The normal mechanisms don’t work, and I can’t even use the Windows Control Panel or manual methods from the Firefox support page. If I disable Prism I’m able to make Firefox my default again, and I can then re-enable Prism. The development team needs to either fix this or make it known in the documentation.

    I had to come back and post here. I posted in February 2008 complaining that Prism was nothing special and I couldn’t see the advantage.

    That opinion has changed.

    I now run prism apps daily for Gmail, GoogleReader, RTM, Vodafone, and occasionally blogger and google maps. This way I can keep gmail in a separate window / instance of the browser. I’m particularly excited by the changes in Prism 1.0 allowing tray icon menus and dock menus, although I can’t find a way to implement them yet.

    While I still like the idea I mentioned of compiling down all the javascript and bundling the app together in one file, I guess the JIT compiler that firefox 3 now has renders this a bit moot anyway. Also that would mean any changes to the app would require a local recompile. So Nevermind!

    Thanks for extending the web experience yet again!

    PS: Extension support is a bit of a sore point at the moment, its a pain editing install.rdf files to make them work in Prism, and it only works some of the time (I can’t get RemoveItPermanently to work at all)

    I have a question on Prism’s internal “engine”.
    Is using Prism is like using a part of Firefox code ? means that a web site will have the same behaviour in Prism as in FF ?, if yes, can we install Prism without having FF, on a PC which has only IE ? It should be a way to run some internet apps that have some display problems with IE but not with FF…

    Tried it, looks and feels stable enough, but I’m having a bit of difficulty adjusting to a one-web-form only interface, having been more at ease in launching the link of the same web page via new tab (i.e. twitter- I’ll use the middle mouse on the followers link to see my new followers without leaving the main page and not having to click on the previous page button which would result in reloading the page). For me it’s a bit limiting to to view a site one page at a time, and oh yeah, clicking on a link not related to the main page opens up the foreign link in another browser.

    Hi,
    I tried to use prism (as on ubuntu 9.04) with my private webmail. It wouldn’t work because the https certificate is self-signed. That is unfortunate, as I cannot afford a recognized signature for my private server. Why am I not able to add an exception? I don’t care so much about man-in-the-middle. The encryption is the important part to me.

    Hi, thanks for Prism. It’s a great app.
    Here are two things i like to see in Prism. But i’m no developper, so i post them here :
    (i hope my english will be understandable)

    - Password manager like in Firefox, with the ability to link a id+password to a Prism shortcut.
    So i could have un Prism for my work gmail and a different one for my personnal gmail. Each with their right login data.

    - I would like to load some Firefox extensions with some Prism shortcuts (listed in the shortcut’s proprieties).
    So i could have a Prism shortcut for MyPreferefWebsite.com, automaticaly loading MyPreferedWebsiteExtension.xpi. No use to load it in Firefox anymore.

When the url is wrong , the xulrunner will popup an alertwindow “The url is not valid and cannot loaded”. I don’t wanna this situation happen,because the application is running in wrokstation having the request running 7×24.
    Is there have solutions to forbid the popup window?

    For those of us who use web mail and find that gmail, the newest version is slow in Firefox, Prism is great.

    For those of us who have moved on from Windows and MSDos after 30+ years and find Adobe to be unnecessary, I’m not sure what Flash has to do with being able to open gmail without loading Firefox. The standalone version of Prism allows me the flexibility of using email without Thunderbird or Firefox. Simple tools are better than all encompassing applications.

    Keeping things simple improves the overall computing experience.

One great thing about Prism is, that you can integrate your webapps with your normal desktop. Like having a starter for Google Mail or Zoho Mail in your menu instead (or in addition if you like) of Evolution, Kontact or Thunderbird (whatever you use). This especially helps, if you’re working on different computers and want to use the same apps and the same documents everywhere without portable apps, a live USB or a USB, where you carry all your data with you (since both data and programs are in the cloud) and on old hardware (since Prism Apps do have a very small fingerprint).

    Perhaps they mean “proprietary” being the difference and/or the “replace the web.” It isn’t real clear, but it is a nice feature. FYI: Many would give Mozilla a try before using another firm’s products.

    So Mozilla Prism is just a software that creates Firefox shortcuts on my start menu which on click will open a browser instance without title bars, menu bars, status bars etc. Is this correct?

    So far, I really enjoy using Prism. It works GREAT for Gmail, which was always crashing or locking up my Firefox window, and now even if I have to restart firefox after installing plugins, etc. The Prism window stays nicely in place as if it weren’t running firefox on the backend at all.

    I didn’t like adding the application as it didn’t auto grab an icon for gmail, so I had to go find one, and then manually assign it.

    I do forsee using this for a LOT of sites that I frequent a ridiculous amount each day.

    [...] Before long I started passing my html document via email to other employees, several of which ashed me to turn it into a program instead of a web page. I, at the time, did not have the resources to do so until someone showed me a HTA. An HTA codes just like an html file. If you added framesets you could get it to display the contents of a page on a server, that way it wasn’t necessary to redistribute the HTA every time you made a change to the code. I developed a version for another client of the call center after my position was exported and I was moved to that client. HTA made my job easier, it just had one flaw that kept me from going into the business of developing consolidated interfaces for call centers… It only works on Windows, and it only opened new window links using IE. Now I’ve discovered Mozilla Prism. [...]

    Great feature Mozilla – thank you. This is much better than Adobe Air and MS Silverlight. IMO, it’s lighter, thinner, and more open as there’s less proprietry garbage to wade through with this solution.

    It is DRAMATICALLY faster and easier to set this up than it is to install & set up Adobe Air & MS Silverlight. It’s no wonder some people have got their backs up over this.

    As to those who are saying ‘why remove the back/forward buttons’. I suggest that this solution is not for you, but rather for more leading edge developers who are in the realm of larger scale, proper ajax applications etc etc, where in fact the back/forward button sometimes becomes undesired.

    This product DEFINITELY has a place in the market. the End result is, what appears to be a 100% local software application for the client, but with the benefit of zero upgrade/patch/deploy maintenance (that can all still be done server side). It’s very elegant and I congratulate you Mozilla on a great product.

    Reducing the screen real-estate is VERY important if you are using a 1024×600 or even an 800×400 screen. Having Gmail or Airset or whatever in an absolutely minimal window makes a genuinely important difference on screens that size.

    This is a really cool looking product, and I definitely think it is a step in the right direction. While I’m really excited to see where this goes the following comment stuck out to me:

    “Unlike Adobe AIR and Microsoft Silverlight, we’re not building a proprietary platform to replace the web. We think the web is a powerful and open platform for this sort of innovation, so our goal is to identify and facilitate the development of enhancements that bring the advantages of desktop apps to the web platform.”

    I agree that the Web is a powerful and open platform for application development, but I would argue that it is hardly ideal, that’s why technologies such as Flex and Silverlight have gotten so much attention. The web has become a platform, but it isn’t a very good platform. To develop on the Web we have to use javascript for our business logic and HTML for our UI’s. Neither technology was intended for application development and it shows. The big issue I see here is the browser isn’t ideal for supporting future technologies. Personally I really like what .Net has done for Windows development. .Net is a robust platform where the CLR is capable of running CIL, a low level language. All .Net languages then compile to CIL and the .Net framework is capable of running those applications. This makes it possible to innovate at the language level, and as long as that language compiles to .Net the .Net framework can take advantage of those langauges, and vice versa. I realize that .Net is a proprietary technology, but I think browsers could really benefit from incorporating a similar technology. Browsers could run some sort of VM that executes a low level Intermediate Language code. Compilers could be made to compile programming those languages to the browser IL code, and browsers could execute those applications without any plug-ins. Doing something like that would make the browser a truly robust platform that application developers could get behind. I realize that Prism is just one step in the right direction, but I hope that you guys at Mozilla are really thinking about how to take web development to the next level.

    It is important the apps run in is own process, because for now, when firefox collapse, all the web apps closes, and probably only one app is the cause.

    One important aspect is the ability we, web developers, be able to save data in the user machine when the user is offline, and sync when it get online, throug javascript or something, for example if we are building a email client, some way to give the user the ability to compose email offline, save it to its own pc, and when it gets online, sync with servers.

    THE KEY CONCEPT IS WE CAN BUILD A SQL (sqlite probably) database for our application and we can query from some API in javascript, probably we request it using a javascript call, the browser ask the user if it allow the app to have is local database, probably with restrictions on the size or something, and with it we can store data cached on the client, combining this with the browser caches the application can work offline if needed, as it can have access to the cached data.

    Felicidades, Great Job. You are building the best browser on the planet.

    If websites can somehow take advantage of running in an desktop environment (file access, network access, etc.) without having to use proprietary markup/code (MXML/MSXML), then we are on to something. Like print stylesheets, web designers can bundle functionality based on the user’s environment. “Browser” style users get most functionality under generic security model while “desktop” style users get all of the functionality for their trusted sites. What about a user certifying sites to enable extra functionality that may be dangerous fare for “untrusted” websites (and hopefully with a better implementation than cookie and popup blocker management)
    Of course, that begs the question: Couldn’t this be an extension of current browser functionality? What if browsers natively had access to run SQLLite and have file IO, persisted storage (a runtime)?

    Interesting read, I grant you that. As an Adobe AIR user, I have to agree with the majority and say that while your technology is interesting, it serves little purpose. The benefits of the alternative technologies are mainly to keep the UI easy for the end user – this software 1) ATM has to be operated and installed manually by the end user (what page will offer step by step introductions when the alternatives are automatic?) 2) is by no means easy for the end user and doesn’t provide much functionality.

    This software should not be considered as a competitor- or an alternative. It is, however, a useful tool for firefox users to “bookmark” things to the desktop.

    Good luck on the project. Interested to see where this goes.

    I’ve tried prism and I can’t seen any huge advantage to it really. If you really wanted to make a desktop app out of a web app, the best way (I think) would be to provide some sort of xul app creator / js compilation service for existing webapps, so you could essentially take a web app (lets say gmail for now), compile the JS down so it runs faster, include a few choice extensions and compile the lot as a neat little app that runs thru XUL runner.

    Then at least there’d be some advantage to it besides Icons for a website, which anyone can do simply by making a desktop shortcut to a webpage and giving it an icon.

    Having said that, mozilla being mozilla, I’m sure you’re already working on something that will make us all go ‘ooohhhh’ – like a lightning fast stripped down firefox3 with embedded support for jQuery or Prototype that uses openGL to enhance javascript animations…. THAT would be awesome…

    Hi,

    today i installed Prism, primarily for measuring performance of WebApps we are currently working on. Even with disabled Firebug and stuff, FF seemed less reliable to evaluate performance than we hoped Prism might. All of our webapps make heavy use of the Dojo toolkit, but, sadly, most of them were broken inside Prism. To be precise, layouting widgets fail to calculate their positions and sizes correctly.

    I cannot say exactly why – dojo correctly recognizes the gecko engine. I wonder if anyone else and/or the labs crew has made similar experiences.

    Besides this, i’d consider Prism a valuable project and we are all looking forward to seeing it evolve!

    Sadly, Mike Chambers , you fail miserable in your argumentation.

    Adobe AIR is “build” around Flash, PDF and Flex. So lets see why AIR is “bad” and PRISM is good (as a standalone viewer by the Webkit team that creates some icon for you and starts webkits in a separate process is great as well, and even a web to desktop approach by Opera would still be “more open” and less proprietary even though Opera itself is closed source and proprietary. Why? Lets see!

    1. Flash, while there are foss projects for viewing/using and creating, is proprietary technology by you, Adobe. You set the rules and not a standards committee.

    It integrates REALLY BAD (spellchecking by the browser/os?, bookmarks? tabs? setting sound volume? security issues, just a view things named here) with the modern web and basically is only good for one purpose: video (and interactive video) – but even that is nothing good cause it seems Apple would not want to pay you a million $$$ bucks for your sincerely permission to use flash as a client player in their iPhone, maybe they just feared your omnipresence and decided to STICK WITH OPEN AND INDEPENDED standards (like their video standard they use)

    Conclusion: you build AIR around flash, flash is owned by you, we would depend on YOU when using AIR. AIR = BAD. This is NOT the case with prism. If webkit will do it better one time, everyone can leave this then sinking ship and enter their deskit or however they will name it ;).

    2. PDF

    While PDF is partially an open ISO norm it is PRIMARILY a proprietary standard, if it is open or not does not matter cause you, Adobe, can make users of it: A.) pay for it B.) make them pay for liscense C.) hide new technological approaches within PDF.

    Conclusion: PDF is nothing good, better stick for PDF-X ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PDF/X ) (the ISO part of PDF) if you want EXACT printable documents, else skip PDF for anything else (for example use open document format or just html). AIR builds around PDF, PDF is not good, AIR is not good, simple as that :(.

    3. FLEX

    Flex is your wannabe .NET as far as I got it. But wait, the main interpreters for net are not available by anyone but you for real use. Lets take a look at .NET – wow there is MONO and other things – but you know the best? If you use prism, you do not have to let OTHERS decide which framework to take, you can take Ruby on Rails, or CakePHP, or Typo3, or whatever YOU PREFER.

    Conclusion: Flex is not flexible, it encages you, and you will have to pay for it. AIR is build around Flex, Flex is bad, AIR is bad.

    So Mike Chambers, while I understand your bias, cause you work at Adobe, and you like your Job more than your free thought, you should really see into something someone would call TRUTH.

    Obvious Truth is, it seems, that PRISM is very elegant approach to let the average guy make the best out of WEB 2.0 (which might then, with full canvas, maybe canvas 3, svg, &shy-support, and so result into WEB 3.0, faster, better accessible, more intuitive web).

    AIR is not, nor is Silverlight.

    So, thanks for pointing it out right,
    thanks for developing and delivering PRISM!

    I think this is an important undertaking, and I’m glad Mozilla is taking it on.

    For many power users, using a single web browser to handle all of the web pages and applications you may be using at any one time can become a crippling user experience.

    I would consider myself a Firefox power user – I use Firefox pretty much everywhere (if it was available for my blackberry, I’d have it everywhere). I use it on windows, I use it on Debian and Ubuntu, I use tabs like crazy (I regularly have 20-50 tabs open at any one time).

    There are many users out there (like me) who don’t just use a web browser to surf the odd news site or blog, but use it as part of a regular toolkit of applications used on a daily basis, such as Gmail, Web Calendar (http://www.k5n.us/webcalendar.php), Craigslist, Youtube, Perlmonks, etc. for work and/or personal projects.

    I also make use of Tab Groups (http://paranoid-androids.com/tabgroups/), and Session Manager (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2324) to make my work with Firefox and the web even more productive.

    The real drawback the the way I currently work is that all this websites, all this web applications and tools are being run under one Firefox process which can grow to consume 300MB + of memory. When Firefox eventually crashes because of the the odd, poorly coded website, it will take ALL of my Tab Groups, Tabs, and Sessions with it. Then I have to start Firefox again (woun’t loose my place, because of Session Manager and Tab Groups) but it takes for every to log back into each and every web application that I was using.

    Prisim, (from what I’ve been reading) aims to get rid of the possibility one browser session affecting another, and running each web application as a separate process.

    Down the road, Prisim could even be transparent within Firefox, automatically loading each web site as a separate process in each tab, so that you could “pop” that tab out into a separate window, and close down the remaining Firefox browser without affecting the popped out session.

    There are so many possibilities for Prisim, I’m really excited about it!

    HI, I’ve been using this quite a bit and I like the concept. It really makes apps more like apps, but I think it needs some fine-tuning. A couple of my ideas/suggestions:

    - Link urls directly to Prism. E.G. If I have facebook.com set up in Prism, and I have a link that takes me to Facebook, open it up in Prism.

    - More intelligent target URL checking. A lot of the links I open up in GMail open up in Prism windows rather than my default browser because of the way GMail handles external links.

    - I don’t know if this is a general issue, but shortcuts like the backspace (navigate back) key don’t work. This can make navigation very frustrating. Although I don’t want erroneous navigation buttons cluttering up my applications, I often still want their functionality.

    Great tool though.

    Now, imagine a company where applications be them web or desktop are bound to application design rules and web sites are bound to web site design rules. No more mix up and fuck up! This is just the best way to introduce management to web applications the way they should be introduced, as applications.

    Chirag’s response 17 was right on, for right now.
    Some more thoughts:

    “1. Seriously long load time.”
    It’s way early; be patient.

    “2. Once you’ve created a “webapp”, there seems to be no way to edit the settings other than editing the webapp.ini”
    Ditto.

    “5. Needs keyboard shortcut keys. If they are present, I can’t find them. Keyboard for full screen, minimize to tray, stay on top etc. would be great.”
    How about Backspace/back (still possible on many “web apps”), Crtl-X/Cut, Ctrl-C/copy, Ctrl-V/paste?

    6. Preferences absolutely must allow selection of a non-default browser.
    At work, my default browser must be IE6 (long story, many reasons, don’t get me started).
    Which means Prism opens links in IE6. Which is just … icky.

    Hi there,

    I have a Question: Prism does not know of MIME-Type “application/x-jinit-applet;version=1.3.1.22″, which is a Java-Runtime implemented for Oracle Internet Application Server, while Firefox does. Even if I re-install the Runtime, Prism won’t be aware of. Is it a fault within Prism or must the Java Runtime register itself with all available “Browsers”? I have also installed the Java Runtime from Sun and these Applets are loaded correctly into Prism.. I run Windows XP w/ SP2

    I’ve just tried adding the .manifest file of an XUL program I’m building to the Prism chrome directory, and everything so far is working exactly as expected. Prism is more than just a way of adding a shortcut to the deskop for a web site you want to run in its own window, even as it stands at the moment, it’s a way for developers to quickly build entire programs that work either online or offline using technologies such as XML, XUL and Javascript, without having the browser controls present.

    [...] Mozilla arbeitet an einer Reihe von Projekten, die die Bedienbarkeit von Internet-Applikationen und Desktop Add-Ons mit Hilfe des Browser noch einfacher und intuitiver gestalten soll. Ein interessantes Produkt dieser Experimente ist „Prism“, über das auf Onlineanwendungen direkt über den Desktop zugegriffen werden kann. Über die jeweilige URL sucht man sich einen Online-Service seiner Wahl und erzeugt via Prism ein Desktop-Icon dazu. So kann man sich je nach Anwendung über das Wetter, den Börsenkurs, oder die letzten Mails informieren lassen. Bei Prisma handelt sich also quasi um einen unsichtbaren Internet-Navigator. Wenn man sich eine Anwendung ausgesucht hat, wird diese in einem neuen Fenster geöffnet. Mozilla arbeitet gerade daran, Prism bestmöglich in den hauseigenen Browser Firefox zu integrieren und es damit zur Stanradausstattung einer zukünftigen Version zu machen. Im Moment ist Prism noch in der Entwicklung, der interessierte User hat aber die Möglichkeit, hier einen Prototyp für Windows ausprobieren. [...]

    I think a lot of people are missing the point here about Prism. Prism will allow you to do more than just ‘run a webpage in it’s own window, and have a link from the desktop’ – this is not really anything new. The beauty in Prism is that it will let me code an entire program (offline, online, or both) using XUL (Mozilla’s standards based interface language) and Javascript, and I won’t need the browser open in order to see it.

    The difference between Prism and AIR is that whilst AIR requires flash, and a fair bit of nifty coding to make it talk to pre-existing databases etc, all of the interface design is done in an XML based language, so it is inherently more open than using Flash. Not only this, but I assume that Prism will also allow you to also use XPCOM objects, which will let you use system-specific functions (eg. zip/unzip a file, connect to a mail server etc) from your applications.

    I think the real people who will see uses for Prism are people running database-driven businesses: a single interface can be built using standard UI components in XUL, which talks to their database using XML, which will run on any platform Prism is available (I’m sure some way of using it on your mobile phone will be available soon). This clearly has huge benefits for system administrators – not least because there is absolutely no legwork in upgrading everybody in the company simultaneously to the latest version of the database interface, update it in one location and whatever platform people are using it on, it will just work.

    Another benefit over flex is that XUL already has many components built with handling large amounts of data quickly in mind, whereas the AIR/Flex components, while better than they once were, are still a long way off in the speed stakes.

    Anybody who has already written an extension for firefox/thunderbird will be able to (with very little/no effort) be able to use it in Prism as a standalone application, one example is FireFTP – it would be hard to imagine this working under AIR, as to my knowledge it has no built in FTP support.

    Although Prism is only in the early stages of development, I’m already very excited about the possibilities, and have wasted no time in brushing up my XUL programming!

Its far more sensible to have a program that doesn’t include them all. Prism seems to do 90% of what I want straight out of the box.

    One request, can you put a superkiosk mode in? A frameless full screen window, no title bar, just the app you want. If you are only running one program on a machine, you don’t need to advertise that its running Windows with a start bar, and if you don’t want users to close the program, don’t give them an X to click!

    Just like we have installers for the Windows OS, Linux, etc., I believe it would be good to have them for Prism.

    Doing this will make it easier to distribute web apps as desktop apps, eliminating the need for the user to specifically enter the urls and other info.

    So the user goes to the site and downloads the prism installer for that particular web site or installs it straight from the web site without file downloads.

    >so please do tell me, where is the innovation?

    To answer your question:

    1) Prism is about enabling end users to integrate web applications into their desktop environment, the types of users who obviously are not going to start programing their own custom apps (embed mozilla in gtk, ie in visual basic, etc etc).

    2) Open source projects need to be announced before they are finished to attract contributers to the project. While I personally think prism in it’s current form is an important step toward the online desktop, there are a lot of different directions the project will take in the future. I have a post up here if you are curious: http://blog.mozilla.org/faaborg/2007/10/29/prism-brainstorming/

    to some, this may not be much better than a shortcut on the desktop (i’ve seen comments to that effect).

    however, for me i neatly solves a problem i’ve been trying to fix. since prism strips away all the trappings of the web browser, people don’t think of themselves as being on the web. it is simply an application. also, removing all the bars and such focusses the user on what they are doing and will reduce distraction.

    also, you don’t need firefox loaded on your computer for it to work.

    i did find that if there is a problem with the security certificate on your website, it can’t continue.

I read about this on my mobile and thought wow, that’s what we need. but after arriving in the office, i was deeply disappointed. so the innovation here is… a browser without any controls? you mean like that one found on every hello world programming example? check out how to embed mozilla in gtk, ie in visual basic, etc etc. this is done in few lines of code. so please do tell me, where is the innovation? every kid in 1998 was able to do prism by himself in visual basic.

    I would have expected easy to use api for offline apps with acces to a local db, distributable on a stick, cd, download, etc… but not this.

    i suggest when you have these things you rename the application to something else than prism so it can catch my and many other disappointed peoples interest again.

  804. clouder wrote on :

    Not that cool yet. I think you in fact do need to have the developers target this thing. Most of the web is just document delivery. There are very few ‘web apps’ out there (in comparison). You should allow the developer (if they want) to be able to target specific features in Prism, like perhaps a File Menu? That way if they take the time they get added goodies. They are developers after all, if they developed their app properly, all the information is just sitting in the cloud and can be pulled down and displayed in any way they want. So I don’t see a big issue with tailoring to Prism, AIR, or Silverlight. As long as your getting a very good usability ratio. In your case that’s making the app look more like a desktop app and not just a browser with limited navigation.

    The File Menu could be as easy as loading in an XML file describing all the menus and options with attributes pointing to new pages, javascript, or whatever else. That’s just a lame example I think with some real thought you could do something amazing.

    Anyways, I do realize it’s v 0.8 but I hope to see something more than just navigation-less browser windows.

    I think this is a perfect solution for those who do not know alot about computers. Such as myself.
    I use as many portable applications as I can. I use FF portable AND Thunderbird portable exclusively.
    Still, both of these aps must be run twice for the host pc to display and use the ext’s and addons that I personally prefer. This gives rise to files left behind on host pc’s making them portable but crippled until host saves your preferences.
    Would prism change this or not. If not, then I rather see no future to this other than saying one can. Even a thinstall version of an application must leave a folder behind on local pc. I suppose if when an ap was opened it created necessary folders, and then when closed it deleted them it would be TRULY portable. There are none that I know of worth mentioning here
    ?
    I suppose I will wait and see what comes of this but rather doubt the outcome.

    Hi all,

    please excuse a long post: I work as a PHP/JS programmer building apps on FF2 (and IE – see later). From my POV there are 3 different topics involved in the answers before, which need to be clearly seperated. I’ll try so:

    1.) Prism vs. Silverlight vs. AIR vs WtH:
    To be honest, I dimply do not give a d. about that.
    The power of web-apps is to run on close to any device, OS etc. There is extensive know-how about that, most of the gaps between web-apps and classical desktop apps are already closed.
    I still do not believe, that Prism, AIR and Silverlight are compareable enough to make this discussion a constructive one.

    2.) “Whats the buzz”:
    While Prism is not a revolution on the technical side of things, from the POV of a programmer, it’s of a giant value: We are now able to create a desktop icon for our STUPID users, that will call our webapp correctly, even if they messed up their “normal” browser settings: An URL link on the desktop will launch in IE, if the user opened IE only once and just clicked yes.
    Please keep in mind, that readers of this article tend to be technically more experienced than typical users, so a “so what” for many of us, might be a “Wow” (Pun indended) for others.

    3.) Gecko/Firefox/XUL bugs/limitations, that naturally appear in Prims as well:
    For us, this is the most serious:
    a) There is a heavy bug in [Gecko|FF|XUL]{I_do_no_know_which} that makes the cursor disappear from input fields, if another input field was made invisible while having the focus (which is bound to happen with any cute UI). Sometimes you can see the cursor blinking at the position the now invisible input field occupied (if object.style.visibility=’hidden’ + some zIndex stuff was used and not object.style.display=’none’ to hide it) the only workaround is to keep track of the visibility of EVERY single input field (as opposed to div containing many input fields) and if one becomes invisible set the focus to something, that does not change visibility before doing the actual switching (which must async, as doing the focus change and the visibility switching inside the same event won’t solve the problem).
    I already posted a bug about this, but – as I can easily understand – there was not yet any action on it.
    Prism seems to trigger this for GMail, which is a good thing for us, as it might help assigning this annoying bug a higher priority – yes, I am an egoist, no I do not have the C skills to fix it myself, else I would already have done so.
    If this helps, I can also provide sample JS code to show the problem.

    b) Startup time/Memory consumption/etc.
    Yes, these issues exist. While this might be annoying, (at the time of writing, FF uses 210.864K, Thunderbird 66.724), I do not consider it that much of a problem.
    To add a bit of fuel to the flame war of 1.): Let’s see, what a silverlight (or better: 11 parallell of them) app doing the same thing as running in my FF windows and tabs right now will consume – and if they will allow my machine to stay mine, not some russian spammer’s droid ;-)

    Best regards, Eugen

    Prism is just the GUI container I have been looking for. I felt that HTA was too restrictive and a IE only solution. If your migrating old DOS applications to GUI, this is a great client as it allows your application to control the flow and not let the user get too creative like they do in a normal browser.

    How is the ‘sidebar’ navigation frame suppose to work? I have search till my fingers are bloody and nothing about this feature. I assume there is some config file that defines this feature.

    There are binary files in the ZIP based application bundles and I wonder how they are created. (by Prism ?)

    I think you’re missing the point about AIR if you think Adobe is trying to develop a “proprietary” app that will “replace the web”. AIR has full support for JavaScript/AJAX and HTML, and it takes nothing more than a simple XML file to move an application from the browser into AIR. AIR has been developed to meet the growing need that Mozilla obviously acknowledges by creating Prism.

    AIR also has first class presence on the desktop and embeds the SQLite database.

    Those corrections aside, I think Prism sounds really cool, it addresses a need, and I like the idea of being able to run any site or web app in its own application window based on my preferences (not the developer’s configuration of an XML file), but right now it’s little more than a chromeless browser window, and I don’t think it really has any edge over AIR yet either.
