It is the installer program.

More specifically, it's the installer that you encounter when installing the operating itself. Not to be confused with the package manager, which is what is being used for installing applications. – Tommy Brunn Aug 5 '10 at 12:10

There is a Ubiquity Firefox Extension, the project is halted by Mozilla Labs right now. It is like a Gnome-Do for Firefox.
