Despite the fact that modern Internet browsers come with the ability to create bookmarks and shortcuts to your favorite websites, you still need to run them in order to reach the desired web application. Thus, if you do not want to consume the additional resources, you can create shortcuts directly on your desktop and avoid your browser altogether.
Create website shortcuts on your desktop
Synthese is a software utility that aims to help you quickly reach the desired web pages and applications, by allowing you to create handy shortcuts on your desktop screen. In addition, the built-in launcher comes with the ability to display the contents of almost any type of page, as long as you have the necessary plugins installed on your system, such as Flash.
Thus, in order to create such a shortcut, all you need to do is to enter the name and URL to the desired web page and the application places a link on your desktop, which can be accessed with a simple mouse click. In addition, you can choose a custom icon to use with the shortcut, in order to personalize the items and make them easier to tell apart.
Choose the preferred window style
Although the utility does not offer you too many options when it comes to the link it creates, it does enable you to choose the desired window style. Using this, you can tweak how the web application starts whenever you execute it and choose whether it uses the entire screen, or stays hidden in the taskbar.
In addition, the actual browser used to view the websites is also rather lackluster, since it does not feature any buttons or functions, except for a right-click menu which allows you to go backwards and forwards between the pages, as well as refresh the session.
A useful website shortcut generator
All in all, Synthese is a handy application to have on your computer, especially if you need to improve the access speed to the websites you frequently visit. In addition, the clean and intuitive user interfaces makes it very easy to set up and configure, regardless of any previous experience.
