Spiffy Application in Ubuntu Hardy: Prism

For certain websites that one uses almost like a separate program, e.g. Gmail, it would be handy to have them running as a separate instance, not linked to your other Firefox windows.  There is a Firefox extension that can supposedly do this, Prism for Firefox, but the other day I tried it and it didn’t work in Ubuntu Hardy (which is still pre-release FYI).  However, today I noticed that there is a prism package in the universe repository and several dependant packages:

prism-facebook
prism-twitter
prism-google-analytics
prism-google-calendar
prism-google-docs
prism-google-groups
prism-google-mail
prism-google-reader
prism-google-talk

Wow!  Very cool!  The Gmail one works beautifully BTW :)
