Keep Your Work Flowing Faster

Have you ever found yourself struggling to remember a web address even though you access it all the time? Or maybe you're one of those people whose time is too valuable to type in the web address or look up the bookmarked file.

Enter Fluid--a Mac based application which allows you to treat your favorite websites like applications and stick them on your desktop, your finder folder, and even better, your dock!

By simply entering the URL, choosing a name, and either uploading an icon or letting it choose one, you've got an easy way to access your favorite websites at any time. There's even a Flickr group for Fluid icons if the program doesn't find exactly what you want.

So all you Mac users out there, try it out--let me know what you think!
