Mozilla Prism now available for Mac and Linux

Prism on Linux
Mozilla has launched Mac and Linux versions of Prism. What's Prism again? It's a stripped down version of Firefox that essentially lets you load a single web page at a time. No tabs, no useful URL or navigation buttons. But Prism can come in handy if you like to keep a single web site like Gmail open all day, since it uses fewer resources than Firefox.

The Linux build that we tested was a little wonky. Pressing F11 fails to make a window fullscreen. And Prism didn't seem to notice that Adobe Flash was installed, which made it pretty difficult to run certain web apps.

All in all, for a 0.8 release, we're not complaining. But there's still some work to be done.
