Caught this on MXNA earlier today so sorry if you are seeing this twice.
Want to “Airify” any website. Like Gmail, or FullasAGoog?
Try Airifier from Arc90. It’s great for making a proof of concept of a site to see if it would be appropriate to spend resources on making it an Air application.

Well, there ya go. Now the boss will stay off my back. *chuckles*
This is actually very simple to do. All you need to do is to have one html file which will be the root content of the AIR application and the html will simply point to the URL you need. This file can look like
<frame src=”http://coldfused.blogspot.com” frameborder=”0″>
<meta http-equiv=’refresh’ content=’0;url=http://http://coldfused.blogspot.com’>
Rupesh, you’re absolutely correct – from a developer’s point of view. But a
regular end-user has no idea what to do with that – they wouldn’t know how
to invoke the AIR SDK, and wouldn’t want to if they could. The idea behind
AIRifier is just to automatate that process, so anyone can turn any website
into an AIR app in 10 seconds. The core idea though, as you’ve pointed out,
is very simple.
It’s also a good simple idea, one that the rest of us didn’t come up with.
