Site-specific browsers (SSBs) are web browsers that allow you to focus on specific sites. The benefit is that you can easily turn web applications like Gmail and Facebook into a neatly wrapped app that sits in your dock. This separates these apps out from your normal browser and allows you to run them independently.
Today, we want to know which SSB you prefer. Is the the tried and true Fluid browser or its popular alternative Mozilla Prism? Both offer similar functionality and easily allow you to create standalone applications for web apps. Or perhaps you prefer Raven, the newcomer in the SSB game. Raven has some unique tricks up its sleeve and is quite unlike any other app. Instead of creating standalone dock apps, Raven uses a sidebar with dedicated shortcuts and custom controls for all your favorite sites. There’s even a free AppStorm Raven app!
Cast your vote in the poll on the right and then leave a comment below explaining your answer. Have you tried all three apps? Which SSB do you prefer? Why do you think it’s better than the competition? We want to know!
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Bazinga 4 Mac. The developer describes Bazinga 4 Mac as an app which can turn any web site, web page or web app into a native mac application. This allows you to access your favorite web sites quickly and easily without relying on your web browser.

Update: We messed up with the price on this one! We’d like to make it clear that Bazinga is completely free, not $49.99 as originally stated. Sorry for the confusion!
