Webrunner becomes Mozilla Prism

The Mozilla-based, single-site "Web app" browser Webrunner, which we covered in July, was rebranded Mozilla Prism in October and moved to the Mozilla Labs site. Initially, Prism was only available for Windows, but Mac and Linux builds are now available.

Webrunner was designed to better integrate Web-based applications into the desktop by allowing you to launch them as separate processes. Each Web app could have a launcher in the system dock, panel, or Applications menu, and when launched each ran in its own window, stripped of the toolbars and navigation controls of a full browser.
