Mozilla Prism to compete with Adobe AIR in the race to the desktop
Mozilla recently announced Prism, a new product to compete with Adobe AIR in the race to integrate web applications into the desktop. Granted, Prism is currently not much more than a glorified shortcut, although AIR offers some more advanced "integration" capabilities such as desktop alerts, etc… But I expect the Prism team will work hard to close the gap soon.
It will be interesting to see what happens as the line between the desktop and the web continues to blur.
