QLPrism is short for "Quake Live + Prism." This is a web application-style launcher for Quake Live. Rather than loading up your web browser, you can simply double click the QLPrism icon on your desktop to directly launch Quake Live. Most of you probably know that this package combines Quake Live and Mozilla (the creators of Firefox) Lab's Prism, which is an application that lets users split web applications out of their browser and run them directly on their desktop. Other than an actual single standalone .exe (i.e. QL Offline Client) this is probably the closest thing to QL "stand-alone."
The whole point of QLPrism is to provide you with a bundled QL + Prism package that is ready to go with a simple double click. This is a great alternative for those who have been recently having problems running Quake Live in other browsers, especially Google Chrome. This also allows manual URL input for QuakeLive URLs (for pickup games), and comes with a few useful Greasemonkey scripts such as wn's Alternative Server Browser pre-installed.
