Pyro: Fire up your desktop with web apps
What is Pyro?
Pyro is a new kind of desktop environment for Linux built on Mozilla Firefox. Its goal is to enable true integration between the Web and modern desktop computing.
By merging the Web with the desktop, Pyro offers the first big step toward a new future for the Web and the applications built for it.
In Pyro, Web content is no longer confined to the browser's window. Instead, trusted Web sites and extensions are given access to the full range of interactivity and control enjoyed by native applications today.
* Rich Web pages running side-by-side with native applications
* Single programming environment for the whole desktop
* Desktop-wide mashups, killer Web integration
* Novel desktop effects
Pyro enables a desktop that tracks the latest in Web technology, and helps mold the future of the integrated Web.
