Web Browser Linux?

Noticing the Trend now towards distro's that are centered
around web browsing.

Wanted to kow from Members of LQ if they knew about any others besides

BrowserLinux(was browserpuppy)


Webconverger 5.2

Very big differences

BrowserLinux is puppy 4.12 66mb!
you run as root
ability to install as full hd install or frugal
firefox 3.5 with flash 10

Webconverger 250+mb(Debian Live)
no user, no root(can be changed)
no hd install, but frugal persisitent usb
firefox and flash10
Debian based
therefore the Deb repos's are available

I'm remastering Puppy, Webconverger, and Pmagic all today

Spagetti Remastering!

gang, you guys know of any others??

Ulteo has been around for a while and is pretty mature.
