Here’s an easy way to manage multiple logins to web services or apps without having to log in and log out constantly!

Fluid App

Step 1
Download and Open Fluid

Step 2
Enter the URL for whatever site you want to create a separate app for.

Step 3
Choose whether to use the site’s Favicon as an icon or create your own.

Step 4
NOT MENTIONED IN THE VIDEO: Choose preferences and choose to separate cookies from Safari, that way it really can stand on its own.

    I use 1Password. Log into it and click on any web entry to open a browser window and 1Password automagically logs in for you :-)

    Tip of the Day using IPad or Phone to scan negatives has been all the rage in my family. My 25 year old nephew is using a photo of his great grandfather on his Facebook profile. He never saw the photo because it never existed as a paper image, in his lifetime, until the scan and printing. Thanks you sooooo much.. I would love to post some of the images scanned and printed. GeekBeat scan and Maybe a Facebook page for lovers of the technique.
