Pros: good for guests to restrict access rights, very simple
Cons: ugly interface



Morphix Firefox-1 is difficult to find on the Morphix website and I could not find out who made this distribution. The ISO file is smaller than most live-cd distros because the only package installed that the user can run is Mozilla Firefox.

The boot screen looks good and the GUI is very simple and fairly easy to use. To open a new Firefox window you hold down on the desktop and select New (the only option). There is no wallpaper image and there are no icons. The only option there is for windows is to iconify it or use File->Close to close the window.

Firefox works very well and extensions can be installed (however they will disappear on reboot). I could not find any way to get a command prompt up or to execute commands. I could find directory listings by typing "file:///" in the address bar though. This distro would be very useful if you have guests over and you only want them to use a web browser on your computer. The GUI is simple yet I think it would look nice if there was a little more color and possibly a firefox wallpaper.

This distro does its job excellently and there is little room for improvement besides a GUI makeover.
