I have a possibly-dumb computer question.
I like Noisli. It's a lovely little web site that provides a simple interface for providing soothing background noise. Press the cloud button, and it plays rain audio. Press the fire button, and it plays fire sounds. And so on.
What I don't like is having to run Noisli in my browser. If I want to *mute* the soothing rainstorm noises, I have to hunt through my (nearly infinite) browser tabs to find Noisli. Likewise, if I quit Chrome, I don't necessarily want to kill the soothing rainstorm noises.
What I would *like* is to have an icon on my desktop that just says "Noisli". And when I double-click that icon, I get a little window that just shows the noisli site. No address bar. No browser buttons. No navigation controls. Just a title bar, some scrollbars, and the contents of that page:
If I quit Chrome, that Noisli window *stays open*. If I try to drag that Noisli window into my browser, *nothing happens*. If I look in my task switcher, that window shows up as "Noisli", maybe with a little raincloud icon.
There must be a way to do this, right? I don't even know where I'd start googling for it, though.
It would be so much nicer to have a little "stopwatch" icon that opens up a little stopwatch window, one that just happens to be a web page on my computer.
How do I make this happen?
