Webconverger is a Linux-based operating system designed solely for accessing Web applications privately and securely. Based on the Debian distro and able to boot live from various media like a CD-ROM and a USB flash drive or can be installed on a local hard drive. Webconverger is an open source project and has its own public git repository which it is able to upgrade from. 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.
Webconverger is typically used in Web kiosk and digital signage deployments. It runs the Firefox web browser with a customised window manager dwm and a Firefox add-on also named Webconverger that locks the browser to a simple kiosk operation mode. The browser is locked down with most 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.
