I'm starting to use zoho Writer as my full time word processor. The problem is, it's a bit tedious to open Firefox and then go to the website. So is there a way i can put an icon on my desktop so that it automatically opens up Zoho Writer in the browser? I'm using the <1MB XFCE with the Rox pinboard.
Thanks

Create a script with contents something like this:

Code:
#! /bin/sh

exec defaultbrowser http://address_you_want_to_go_to


Drag that to the desktop, give it an icon, and you're good to go.
