Fluid – websites as Mac apps

After installing, simply enter the URL to the site in question (first options for me were a specific Trello board, Google+, and Facebook)

I suspect when I look more into scripting I’ll find other ways of achieving the same – but for now, it’s yet another brilliant simple Mac workflow.
