Create a Net Connect Desktop ...

I found this one earlier today and it doesn't work yet on Firefox 6 ... so I loaded version 5 and tried the app ... similar to Chrome creating standalone apps, this handy firefox extension adds that ability and a few more to customize use. If you have some webapps that you use more like standalone applications, here is a way to have them handy on your desktop just like having a functioning program on your laptop or netbook. I think also as more development is done on html5 you will soon have the flexibility of being able to work on applications that you load as webapps offline ... this is setting the stage for a complete takeover over the cloud services now that can dominate the functionality of your basic mobile computing experience.

For now, this is a great start for you firefox users ... WebRunner Turns Webapps Into Desktop Apps

go to your target folder
right click
hit W and T
bingo .. you will see a new text file that you can name ... click on it and type away

I have started playing with an ipad now and of course it was crucial for me to have and use mindmapping. As Mindmanager is my key goto tool, it was a relief to see this post.

I am using this and find that the cloud sync and store is very very handy to keep maps right at hand on the ipad ... app is easy to use but lacks formatting to make things all pretty, but that is a small price to pay for the utility of having the tool handy on the instant on ipad ...
