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 can 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.
== Included Features ==
• Custom Keyboard Shortcuts - Easily specify the keyboard shortcut used to exit the browser view. Optionally disable standard application shortcuts, such as Command + Q, while the browser is open.
• Enhanced Security & Content Controls - Configure a password that must be entered before the browser can be closed. Sessions can be automatically cleared after a configurable delay, automatically resetting the browser when left idle.
• Local File Support & Automatic File Change Detection
• Immersive & Powerful UI Control - Give users a full screen web browser, or hide all UI elements and use Kiosk as an immersive full screen experience with your custom web applications.
• Presentation Mode - Designed for use where user interaction is not needed, Presentation Mode allows you to disable browser interface elements, such as the mouse cursor, toolbars & tabs. Perfect for use in informational kiosks or marketing displays.
• Display Detection - Kiosk automatically detects the characteristics of any monitors connected to your Mac. You can configure the browser to start on the main display, a specific display, or automatically enable mirroring across all displays while the browser is active.
This update addresses an issue with the presentation option to automatically refresh pages that prevented the feature from working if you only had one page displayed.

Ratings and Reviews
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.
