Using Web Applications is getting easier every day, but there’s generally not quite as convenient as desktop applications. The only two exceptions I’ve found so far are Remember The Milk for task management and Google Reader for my RSS feeds.
This evening I found a way to bring RTM one step closer to “Native Application” like performance – now I can simply press “CTRL+ALT+R” or click the cute “Cow” icon in my Menubar and immediately add tasks to my RTM account.

(Note that the video has narration – be sure you’re sound is enabled)
- Download Fluid from fluidapp.com
- Download the RTM Menubar Icon from Flickr
- Copy this URL http://m.rememberthemilk.com/add
Once you’ve downloaded Fluid and the RTM icon from Flickr, open RTM and choose: * URL: http://m.rememberthemilk.com/add * Name: RTM Add Task * Location: Applications * Icon: The Icon you downloaded from Flickr
After choosing create, go to the Application menu and choose Preferences, then select the “General” and select the Global Shortcut.
Next, go back to the Application menu and choose “Convert to MenuExtra SSB”, choose OK on the prompt, and you’re done.
