Webconverger addon for Firefox

Curated by Mike Kaply @mikekaply

The common idea is to limit the Firefox browser to functions for kiosk style (non-personal) browsing. Limit most Firefox features to convey simplicity, familiarity and principle of least astonishment.

Used in "Enterprise" deployments, schools, libraries, signs, shops and banks!

http://webconverger.org/kiosk/ shows how it is used in the Webconverger Linux distribution.

Many thanks to security researcher and "kiosk hacker" Paul Craig for his review.
