There was a shell that Be Inc. developed for BeOS that basically had the browser and everything integrated into the shell. It was for the BeAppliances. If you ever had the Beta Dan0 installed on your system they had the program in the System folder if I remember correctly.

I miss my old BeBox with das blinken lights.

You mean instead of invoking/running the browser after/during booting a regular BeOS, that they replaced Tracker with the browser?
