Pokki Brings Awesome Web Apps, Games To The Desktop

We’ve seen Mozilla Prism and Google Chrome’s application shortcuts, built to display and make websites (web apps) behave as native applications. But both had one disadvantage, you don’t feel any difference over using just the browser. Basically, both just displayed the same look which you would see when opening the website in the browser. You never get the feeling of using an actual native application. This is why SweetLabs came up with Pokki. Currently in beta, it aims to make you feel as if you’re actually using a desktop app when the next time you open your Gmail inbox or use the Facebook to connect with your friends or tweet to your friends. Pokki is available only for the Windows platform now, with Mac and Linux support coming down the line.
