10.4: Launch Dashboard from any browser
Authored by: Marius_Th on Aug 07, '06 09:07:25AM
It's easier to do this with "More Internet"

Just install and go to the prefpane, add a custom protocol and description for it, drag ANY!! application to it and use MyProtocol:// in your internet browser to launch the application you chose.

(Where MyProtocol is the protocol name you defined for it)

10.4: Launch Dashboard from any browser

There are predefined protocols that you can use to launch applications in the browser. You do not have to installed any third party applications to launch any of these standard applications: However, using the browser to launch some of these applications causes weird behavior.
