Prism is an application that lets users split web applications out of their browser and run them directly on their desktop. It lets users add their favorite web apps to their desktop environment. They are accessible with Control-Tab, Command-Tab, and ExposÃ?Â©, just like desktop apps. And users can still access these same applications from any web browser when they are away from their own computers.

Ok, first, this is not a review of the Opera Browser... If you want to discuss that, please use the "Discussions" section and not the "Review" section. And while we're at it, note that Chrome also had/has this functionality, likely even before the Opera Browser. Either way, it's a mute point since whatever browser offers this feature, we all still have our choice of browsers to choose from and it's great if they all do offer some of the same functionality.
As also noted below, I'd like to second that opinion that when clicking on a link we have a choice some how of opening it in either the same window, new window or open it in the default browser window. I setup a test for using Gmail, but when I clicked the calendar from within the Prism window, it opened my Firefox, which isn't what I wanted to do. Maybe if they offered an option in the right click menu for opening in the default browser and default clicking stays within the Prism window, unless maybe it's an external link outside of the domain of what the Prism window was setup for.
Anyway, Prism seems good. Some good options given when you setup a Prism window. Runs quick enough, opening a Prism window is quick enough. Didn't encounter any errors in initial runs of the program.
I give it a 5. Does what it says, does it well too.

great app but missing one option that i would like to see. when clicking on a link, instead of opening a new window it would be nice to have it open in a new tab in the same prism window.

This functionality is present in Opera browser since a long time now. Try running Opera browser in the Kiosk mode and see the results. You can even customize it to your liking.

"5 for just being an open source project" - You are such an idiot! Nobody cares if you like OS. Rate the damn program!
I like prism a lot. You can for example use it to create your own desktop Yahoo mail program. It is sometimes however crashing and does not support the proxies defined in FF. Will be great but still a lot of work to do.

I read many, of the what seemed like a thousand comments, to it's conception on it's home page.
I don't know squat about programming but it seems to have SOME sort of potential; what I don't know.
I can't quite figure out the difference between this and say a portable application as I use as many as I can get my hands upon. I'm typing with FF portable now.
