Easily turn any Mac into a standalone Kiosk featuring a full-screen web browser.
In just a few simple clicks, you can set up your Mac to function as a web-based Kiosk. Whether you need to allow guests to register for your event or just want to set up a dedicated machine for public Internet surfing, Kiosk offers the functionality you need.
You can easily set the default home page for the browser, as well as specify whether or not the user can use the address bar to access other websites. Or, if you don't need the standard browser functionality, simply turn off the toolbar entirely and let the website have the full screen.
Users are be locked into the browser, and can't change, minimize or hide the window using standard key combinations.
Need to restrict which websites visitors can access? No problem. Kiosk is designed to be flexible without sacrificing simplicity.
More features are on the way, including password protection, flexible and customizable keyboard shortcuts, and more! If you would like to see a specific feature, let us know!
* Fixed crashes when running Kiosk on Snow Leopard
* Fixed minor display issues with the toolbar if the browser is closed and reopened in the same session

Doesn't work as advertised - You can't make a web page full screen. I turned off all the bars, and and there is a 10 or so pixel gray bar at the top and a 80 or so pixel gray bar at the bottom. This makes every full screen web page look terrible. Not sure if it's a bug but it makes this app totally useless for me. This app had literally ONE thing to do for $5 and it fails to do it.

So many features missing. - The app says it can be used for a public kiosk. That's completely false. Users can quite out using standard keyboard shortcuts. The app needs much more privacy and control settings. I want to disable downloads and exit for starters. Basically all the app does is launch a brower in full screen method. The idea is good, but it's competely useless at this point. The developer ask for suggestions, but the contact link on the page doesn't even work! Short sighted.
Needs to support local disk pages for a 5 star Part2 - How's it coming along adding the ability to have a webpage that's stored on a local drive? The macs I want to use this on are STILL NOT internet connected. Lose 1 more star.
