Quick Start

Just Browsing is a "live CD" that does not make any changes to the existing operating system on the computer. Enjoying a simple computing experience with only a web browser (your choice of Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome) is just a few steps away.

JustBrowsing is built on the excellent ArchLinux, a rolling-release distribution, which keeps it always up-to-date. It uses the light-weight window manager, i3, and keeps the experience uncluttered. A bottom panel, adeskbar, displays the time and date, and has all the settings visible, no hunting around. Free and open source. The background inspiration for JustBrowsing is detailed here
