Is there any app mode like there was in Prism/Chromeless projects ?
Some time ago I used Prism to create standalone web applications of websites I use the most (i.e. gmail, facebook), now I saw that Prism project was abandoned and replaced by Chromeless which it's also abandoned : I want to ask if, just now, is there a way to obtain something similar to Prism/Chromeless and re-create mine web applications with desktop icon and so on.

The XULRunner page on MDN mentions using the -app startup switch with firefox.exe. Does that work for your needs, or do you need something completely stand-alone?
Hi jscher2000 , I was exactly searching for an -app switch for commandline, using firefox --help doesn't list this one so I thought it was removed. I will try to understand how to create the ini file needed to launch mine application.
Is there a simple/automated way to create/run firefox in app mode only inserting a URL ? example something like firefox -app -create www.gmail.com ?
In prism and google chrome I was used to do it simpler : prism : tools->create application from website google chrome : chrome-browser -app="www.gmail.com" .
Is there something analogue for firefox ?
Hi magowiz, although I was able to find the above links, I don't have any personal experience with XULRunner. If the MDN resources don't answer your question, you could try another resource such as the ones on this page:
So you need a replace for prism/chromeless?
Node-webkit is created and developed in Intel Open Source Technology Center so hopefully we might see a lasting support.
Check them out, they're simple to get started with.
The discontinuation of prism/chromeless really broke my heart. :(
You can download an old standalone version of Prism from Microsoft.
Hi OGRastamon, I think Microsoft's Prism is a different program than Mozilla's Prism.

Yeah, I think you're right. But I do have a standalone of Prism that still works. Just not sure where to find it.
