How to make an Electron App of any website easily on Ubuntu 18.04

Today we are looking at how to make an electron app of any website with ICE.  ICE is an app that I think the Peppermint OS team has created and is very powerful.  ICE basically allows a person to create an Electron app of any webpage with one of most of the well-known browsers out there.  

It is pretty easy to set up, first of all, a person needs to add the Peppermint OS PPA and it is recommended as seen in the video to remove the PPA after installing ICE.  After adding the PPA a person can just install ICE with the second command and that's it.  Please make sure that the browser which you want to use needs to be installed on your system.  Enjoy!

Commands Used:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:peppermintos/p9-release
sudo apt install ice
remove ppa (optional but recommended)
