French Mac software developer
AppMac Software has released wKiosk Browser v3.0, a new version of its fullscreen Web browser for Mac-based Internet and intranet kiosks. The software is aimed to provide users with access to the Internet without giving them direct access to Mac OS X or other applications.
The new release of
wKiosk Browser 3.0 is built using Apple’s Safari Engine (previous versions relied on a version of the Netscape engine). New options have been added to the user interface, new security has been added, better download and popup management has been added and there’s better window and tabview management. There’s more, too.
AppMac indicated that wKiosk is already in use by American and French universities for public Internet kiosks.
wKiosk Browser v3.0 requires Mac OS X v10.3 “Panther.” The initial release is in English; a French version is expected soon. wKiosk Browser costs US$149 for the “standard” version and $299 for the “pro” version.
