Chromed

September 4, 2008

With their new Chrome browser Google just threw their hat into the ring. Of course we were curious to see how Widgetop would look like:

Widgetop on Chrome

Not to our surprise it works very well right out of the box because it is based on the WebKit engine (used by Apple for the Safari browser). Google spent a lot of effort to make it the perfect browser for web applications like our Widgetop desktop. It’s really fast because they sped up the javascript engine. Moreover you can easily create an application shortcut which you can put on the Windows desktop, start menu or quick launch (similar to Prism or Fluid):

  • Open the Widgetop desktop in Chrome
  • Open the page menu and select Create application shortcuts
  • Choose the shortcuts you want to create

And don’t forget, in addition to your own Widgetop desktop you can create shortcuts to one of Widgetop’s publicly shared desktops.

Dock Widgetop with Fluid (Mac OS X only)

July 31, 2008

Quite a while ago we showed you how to integrate the Widgetop webtop into your Windows desktop or your Linux desktop with the help of Mozillas Prism platform. While you can use Prism to add Widgetop to your Mac there is a much better alternative – Fluid. Its current version is much better integrated into the Mac desktop then Prism (but requires Leopard though).

Just download Fluid, run it and create a new entry for Widgetop. You will get:

  • A link to Widgetop in your Programs folder.
  • Run it and you will see the Widgetop icon appear in the dock like any other Mac application. Just login to your desktop (or create a new account) and your Widgetop desktop is just a click away.
  • By choosing Convert to Embedded SSB from the Widgetop menu you can even put your widgets on the Mac desktop itself.

Hints:

  • In addition to your own Widgetop desktop you can run one or many of the shared desktops from http://www.widgetop.com/shared.html. Just give them a distinct icon for better differentiation.
  • If you want to use better icon you can download and use this:

May 27, 2008

Therefore we made the little tweaks to optimize our mobile desktop for the sidebar of Firefox and the Opera panels.

How to run in Firefox sidebar:

  • Open http://m.widgetop.com?ForceOnDevice and bookmark the page
  • Open the properties for the just created bookmark and┬ácheck Load this bookmark in the sidebar
  • You might want to move the bookmark to the bookmark toolbar for quick access

How to add to Opera Panels:

Just click this link.
