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 and can be installed on a local hard drive. Webconverger is an open source project and has its own public git repository but it also contains the proprietary Adobe Flash player. 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 a minimalistic browser-only system. It runs the Iceweasel web browser (based on Firefox4) with a customised window manager dwm and 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 internationalization, including CJK input methods.
