Smallest distro with chromium, jre
 
Hi,

I'd like to have a virtual system for one purpose only.
I need preferably chromium browser (or Firefox) installed with java run time so that I can have jre running in chromium.

What are the simplest (less resource hungry) distros you can recommend?

You could install Arch, and then just the packages you require. That would be likely to run quite quickly and with a minimum of nog cluttering your hard-drive :)

Arch is a great suggestion! Other very small distros include Browser Linux (based on Puppy), SliTaz, and TinyCore.

Thank you guys!

I'll start with BrowserLinux but will keep an eye on the others.
