There are some Web sites like Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, and others that you might want to run in their own application. I know that it might be more convenient for me to have a Gmail app rather than using Safari or setting up Apple’s Mail to access it.
The companies that provide these services don’t provide a desktop app, but they do provide a Web interface. That is where Fluid comes in. Fluid allows you to be able to take that Web interface and use it in its own application. You can make an application for any Web site and it will run just like any other native application on your computer.
This is a nice, seamless way to integrate online services into your everyday suite of applications. Watch the video below to find out how to set this up. Feel free to comment.
