You can just download the linux tar.gz, extract it anywhere you want and run it from there, no need for a package.

But I don't really get what this is. As far as I can tell these are all web services, so why not just use them from a browser? (which this really is, albeit a very restricted one)

Cool, I'll do that then.

I'm not really sure what it is myself to be honest. A sysadmin/dev peer mentioned he heavily used it, so I thought I'd check it out. I had the same initial thought as you. In diving into this realm more since starting the thread, I'd be inclined to just use Firefox from both a functionality standpoint (e.g. using whatever addons desired) and from a privacy standpoint Firefox's Containers is a new-to-me intriguing route. But NoScript doesn't support Containers as of yet.

One thing that rambox would offer over any browser approach though, as I currently understand it, is consistent shortcut keys, stacked notifications, and more ready customization.
