Muxtape With Coverflow Using Fluid

[In the link] Below is a quick tutorial on harnessing the power of Fluid’s new thumbnail plugin to create a simple Muxtape application with sweet coverflow previews of the featured mixes.

[From Muxtape With Coverflow Using Fluid]
I just checked this fantastic usage for a desktop web application. First, let's say thanks to the mind behind Muxtape. For a photographer, Justin sure knows how to keep things simple enough to be just great! But if we leave the main functionality if muxtape behind, its homepage is sort of... less than useful! So enter Fluid. I know, I know, Mozilla's lab project Prism can do exactly the same and is multi-platform. But can it create a fantastic coverflow view of a set of pages thumbnails? Well, [without some not-yet-developed XUL-based add-ons, ] no. That's one more reason for me to love me having entered the Mac world! But seriously. If you don't want to try it because it's too hard, just take a look at the video screen cast in the link above, and see for yourself. It's 2 minute easy (with fluid download times included :) )
Let's all hand some kudos for Justin!
