Mozilla Prism, Chrome and Site-specific browsing

The prism plugin of firefox seems so easy to use. But I ran into problems. Unfortunately, I encountered two distinct issues.

  • Prism does not seem to be included in Firefox for 64bit Fedora.
  • It did not work with 32 bit firefox included with Arch Linux.

I did get it to work easily with the 32bit firefox downloaded from Mozilla's site. But Prism plugin is not compatible with FF4 beta as yet.

After these experiences, the site-specific browsing option in Chrome seems to be better and cleaner. So, I will experiment with Facebook as a desktop application using Chrome for my mother and see how she manages.
