If complete security isn't a concern, this flexible kiosk browser is easy to configure and operate. Arlington Kiosk Browser is a snap to install, and users with very little experience should find it easy to configure. Unfortunately, experienced users can bypass program gates to get to the operating system.

Arlington Kiosk Browser simplifies the typical Internet Explorer browser. Its default setup should work for most users. Required functions such as Address, Back, Forward, and Print are easily accessed from a button menu. An additional button menu of links to helpful sites can be personalized. The program's multitabbed options menu presents an array of items to easily set the browser to user specifications. Setting browser appearance is a mere matter of clicking a few check boxes. Those familiar with HTML can precisely set the look and operation of the toolbar. Security is set with check box options in the customize menu. You can easily restrict select Windows shortcuts, block certain programs from loading, or prevent access to the hard drive or USB drives. Lab managers will appreciate the session function to log off users after a preset amount of time.

There are many programs in the kiosk genre, and this is one of the easiest to configure, but there is a trade-off. Arlington Kiosk Browser makes setup easy, but its efforts can be bypassed by an experienced user.

    "OK for 95% of what you need"

    November 17, 2007

    Version: Arlington Kiosk Browser 9.2

    Pros

    Price is not too bad for what you get in the package. The Admin guide was easy to follow, although I configured nearly everything without needing to refer to the guide.

    "Sort of secure"

    June 12, 2007   |   By GlenJ

    Version: Arlington Kiosk Browser 9.2

    Pros

    Seems fairly secure and easy to use. Prebuilt in filter to prevent unauthorised access to "bad" sites.

    Cons

    Anyone who knows somekeyboard shortcuts can quickly do things that it should stop.

    Not secure enough for public use.
