Ghostzilla was an invisible browser made for surfing at work. It used a sort of an optical illusion to make it appear as if you are not surfing the Web. Take a look at the original Ghostzilla Web pages preserved by the Archive.org Web museum below, or check out the Ghostzila's author's latest software invention, Visikord.

What is Ghostzilla? Take a look at the screenshots and you'll get the idea.

Ghostzilla is a Web browser like Firefox, but it shows up and disappears instantly, discreetly, blended with your application -- any application -- so the Web pages look like part of it and not like the Web at all.  (Read here how.)

What would you use it for?
  1. Hide from your boss and coworkers. Not a good idea; you can get fired (the network administrator sees everything you do) or end up wasting lots of time.
  2. Survive endless meetings (if you have a laptop; kind of like (1) but a little better).
  3. Have a browser instantly available and dismissable within your work application, washed out from ads and unnecessary pictures. This sounds useful -- except it will help you develop that attention deficit disorder. Seriously.
So what's it for then?
  • Entertainment. Ghostzilla is a form of computer art.
Ghostzilla is open source software. You can pick up the free program, or its source, or both. The code is based on an old version (1.0.1, November 2002) of the Mozilla open source browser. Ghostzilla runs on Windows only.
