Chromed

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.

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
