How to use Fluid to create a site specific app

Fluid is a free, powerful (Mac OS X only) app that lets you create a site specific desktop app out of any Website. You can download Fluid (it’s free) here. In this tutorial I will create an app to easily access my Mint installation.

  1. First download Fluid and launch it.
  2. Fill in the info as you see in the images below. Many websites give high-res .png images that will look great on your OS X dock. If you don’t have such an icon, there is an option to use the website’s favicon instead.
  3. After filling the info, click “Create”. That’s it after a few seconds your app is ready to go and any website can be easily accessed via launching this custom app.

Here is video walkthrough of the tutorial.
