Firefox on the motherboard

Today ASUS launched a new motherboard called P5E3 Deluxe/WiFi-AP@n, which includes the ASUS Express Gate technology.

ASUS Express Gate enables you to surf the internet in 5-second-boot time without entering Windows. And the surf is done with Mozilla Firefox.

With a fast bootup speed of only 5 seconds, the ASUS Express Gate offers an optional Linux OS bootup that allows you to enjoy instant access to commonly used functions like accessing the Internet, VoIP, and Web emailing without entering the OS.

The big news is that the motherboard ships with an embedded Linux and webbrowser. And the webbrowser is Mozilla Firefox.

The web browser loaded up on this Linux environment is called the "SplashTop Browser", but it's really nothing more than a stripped down version of Mozilla Firefox.

The SplashTop Browser is a cut-down version of Mozilla Firefox 2.0.
