kiosk browserA kiosk browser is a more secure and customizable Internet web browser. Kiosk browsers are of use to public Internet access sites such as schools, libraries, or even retail stores and Internet cafes. The kiosk browser easy allows an administrator to configure restricted access Web sites, limit or disallow file downloads, customize the toolbar with company logos, and additional features. Many kiosk browsers also allow you to deny access to the desktop of a public computer, and include an integrated e-mail client. For Internet cafes and other pay per usage terminals, a kiosk browser may also include a time logger that will automatically limit the amount of time a user can spend online, determined by the amount they have pre-paid to use the system.
