How to Create Fluid Apps
Once downloaded you are ready to create your webapps. Simply launch Fluid and follow the onscreen instructions to easily setup the application.
Insert the complete URL of the website, chose a name for it and add an icon. By default you can use the favicon of the website, but of course you are free to customize it using the image you want.
If you are looking for great images you could try to go to the official Flickr page of Fluid where there are hundreds of pictures that will look great on your dock. You can find the page at the following address: http://www.flickr.com/groups/fluid_icons/
Finally, hit the Create button and Fluid will setup your webapp. In a few seconds you will be asked if you want to open the new app, or if you want to see it in the Finder. Either way you are now ready to enjoy your webapp on your dock.
The website you’ve chosen will be put inside a framework based on Safari, without the address bar and all the other items that normally occupy the top of the screen. In this way the navigation will be easier, faster and cleaner.
There are also others advantages to using Fluid. Some webapps created in this way, support notification badges. For example, if you create a Facebook webapp, you are immediately notified when someone sends you a message or tags you in a photo.
