updated 05:55 pm EDT, Wed May 12, 2010

New version updates security, download management

app4mac has updated its web browser for kiosks, wKiosk 6.0. The software provides a full screen web browser for use in public places, such as libraries or museums. It can also be used as a default web browser for a business or organization. It runs web apps and presents web content with predetermined restrictions on web location access, system settings and downloads. It can be configured in minutes and is touch screen capable.

Version 6.0 is completely rewritten in Objective C 2.0 in a Cocoa framework, utilizing Apple's WebKit, and is HTML 5 compliant. It has improved URL control management, better toolbar management and better handling of multiple screens. Security management, download management and stability are also improved. Version 6 features a new dashboard for navigating history and pages and a new virtual keyboard for touch screens. There is also full optimization for Snow Leopard.

app4mac has also announced the software will arrive for iPad later this month.

wKiosk 6.0 requires Mac OS X 10.5. It is 50, about $65, with multiple license discounts available.
