Ubuntu – Is this really the only way to simply put a link to a web page on the desktop

11.10firefox

After going through many results of a google search on this subject I've only found this solution: Creating a desktop launcher.

I'm using Firefox 8.0 on Ubuntu 11.10. Please tell me this is over-complicating the process and that there's an easier/ more direct way!

There is an extension to Firefox called SaveLink that does just that.
