Here’s a neat little trick I discovered today for those of you who are addicted to the new Web based version of Woopra, but who would still like to be able to run it as a desktop application sometimes.
(NOTE: this is not an officially supported release, but it does work anyway.)
Fluid is a free Mac application with a very simple interface and a simple purpose – enter a web page, and convert it into a desktop “app”.
Simply download and launch Fluid and it asks you which URL you want to convert to a desktop app. Enter http://woopra.com/live, give it a name, and that’s about it.
Keep in mind that you can also use the Woopra Chrome app if you are a Chrome browser user and want a quick shortcut.
I’m not aware of any similar Windows based application that can capture a Web app into a desktop app, but if you are please share it with everyone in the comments! Meanwhile, we still have plans for packaging the Web based version into an officially supported desktop app in the not too distant future. Stay tuned…
