WebCatalog vs Fluid opinions
Almost everyone thinks WebCatalog is a great alternative to Fluid.
possum WebCatalog has the same functionality as Fluid, but with more. WebCatalog has many pre-configured sites to make into apps and makes them into Electron apps which have more functionality than your general web browser will have.
Websites have become incredibly powerful tools, often more powerful than traditional desktop apps. However, despite their usefulness, they still live as tabs in our cluttered web browsers and aren’t given all of the benefits of native desktop apps. That is, until now.
Nativefier is a command-line tool to easily create a desktop application for any web site with succinct and minimal configuration. Apps are wrapped by Electron in an OS executable (.app, .exe, etc.) for use on Windows, macOS and Linux.
