I alternate between using Hootsuite and Tweetdeck to manage my twitter accounts daily and despite the updates and feature improvements to both applications neither has all of the features I need to be my sole Twitter client. I had done a previous compare of Hootsuite vs Tweetdeck which is a little outdated with the latest updates but still holds up pretty well overall. This latest article is about how to turn your Hootsuite website into a desktop application with Google Chrome.
I did a video demonstration showing you step by step how to accomplish this:
Turn Hootsuite into Desktop Application
One benefit of turning the Hootsuite website into a Chrome Application is that you can call it directly as an app from the desktop, start menu or task bar. This means you can open the app without opening the browser (well, you really are but you won’t be able to browse with the Hootsuite app). It opens as a separate process and a separate window that is isolated from your Chrome browser completely. This is ideal for those who like having a separate app and not having to switch or tab back and forth between their Twitter management and websites.
Here are the manual steps for those who didn’t watch the video and prefer to read it.
- Open Google Chrome
- Click on Tools -> Create Application Shortcuts
- Select where you want to create the link to (Desktop / Start Menu / Taskbar)
- Click OK
Your window will now turn into a mock desktop application and separate out from the browser itself.
This same trick will work with RockMelt as well since it is based on the Chromium browser.
