    Previously I suggested Speed dial and FireGestures.

    This is a firefox 3 only extension.

    Prism is a Mozilla Labs product that create stand alone web app, who runs like a normal app, has its only executable binary, its own place in dock, and independent from any running copy of firefox.

    download is here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/6665

    a brief review http://blog.internetnews.com/skerner/2008/03/mozilla-expands-prism-desktop.html

    Step by step

    1.goto any website (such as google calendar, meebo, etc) choose Tools->convert website to application

    3.an application will be created on desktop (or application folder, depends on your choice in step 2), this app has all the attribute of a normal app.
