It does allow you to create a desktop or quick launch icon to a website. When doing this, it has even less chrome then the normal version. It also uses the sites favicon as the icon.
Yeah, I made one for our email but it's of limited use to me if I can't minimize it and get notifications.
Making a minimize to tray would be an easy feature, and pretty cool. However having it notify on update would be a whole other beast. I can't think of a way to do it without requiring some specific code from the website itself.
Well they could get more specific on the dom change but I agree about the basic problem in doing it this way.
Alternately, it could be an open notification standard, with support for messaging that the site itself could manipulate through js. In any case, when something like that finally happens, I think the webtop people have been talking about for so long will finally come to life.
You haven't happened to find my search bookmark functionality have you? Without that I can't see myself even using it for more than testing.
