NetJaxer is a windows app that integrates the desktop with a number of web apps, like GMail and Writely. You get shortcut icons in the desktop and system tray, and there’s a special NetJaxer browser for interacting with the web apps.
Our program is called NetJaxer http://www.netjaxer.com/ Itâ€™s a free and easy way to integrate a users favorite Web 2.0 apps like Gmail, TadaList, Digg, Writely, Kiko, iOutliner, Meebo, financial sites, and other Ajax based web programs right into Windows. They can create desktop, tray, and quick launch icons. These applications can easily be used with our custom browser.
It’s hard to see how NetJaxer is adding a lot of value at this stage (you can achieve similar functionality by dragging website icons to the desktop), but there’s certainly potential in the idea – imagine dragging a document into a GMail icon or having desktop notification that your buddy just logged in to Campfire.
