Webconverger addon for Firefox
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.
Found a way to circumvent the extension? Please let us know!
Many thanks to security researcher and "kiosk hacker" Paul Craig for his review.
