Webconverger is a Debian-based live operating system designed to be used solely for accessing Web applications.

Webconverger_1 Webconverger is a Debian-based live operating system designed to be used solely for accessing Web applications.


It can be run from various media like CD & USB flash drive. Webconverger is an open source project and has its own public git repository.


Webconverger is pre-compiled to run on any x86 hardware so far. It does not have high system requirements and will also run on older machines.

Updates (via Distrowatch):

Webconverger Kai Hendry announced the release of Webconverger 7.0, a Debian-based live "kiosk" distribution that boots into the Firefox web browser. The biggest change of this release is the base system update from Debian "Lenny" to Debian "Squeeze": "Webconverger 7.0 marks a huge milestone for the Webconverger browser-only operating system, since the Debian base system has upgraded from 'Lenny' to Squeeze'. The 6.2 to 7.0 changelog has several highlights such as: upgrade from Mozilla Firefox 3.5.8 to 3.6.12; switch from Splashy boot animation to Plymouth; upgrade from Adobe Flash 10.1 to Flash 10.2; faster booting thanks to Debian Live's live-boot and live-config. There has been a community discussed privacy change whereby Webconverger 7 reports its version to a ping service."

Here is the brief release announcement with a screenshot and some relevant links.

Webconverger_2

Webconverger is a minimalistic browser-only system. It runs the Iceweasel web browser with a Firefox add-on that locks the browser to a simple kiosk operation mode. The browser runs in full screen mode with all menus, toolbars, key commands and most right button menus disabled. Webconverger contains Adobe Flash support and PDF viewing by default. Both wired and wireless networks are supported via DHCP. There is also support for I18n, including CJK input methods.
