Raspberry WebKiosk is designed for the cheapest possible web kiosks and multi-user web workstations (use in cafès, offices, schools, hotels, hospitals, libraries) with the Raspberry Pi microcomputer base, where people can surf the web with a normal browser.

Cheap web kiosk with a Raspberry Pi base

Raspberry WebKiosk is a browser-only (only the interface of the browser will be displayed) hacker-proof operating system for Internet browsing purposes, which protects users’ privacy. After every reboot, browser will be kept back to the default state and downloaded files will be deleted.

System makes use of Google Chromium as Internet browser; it features internationalization, it supports printing and both wired and wireless networks. System parameters are set by a user-friendly web interface.

Raspberry Digital WebKiosk 7.0 has been released today by Marco Buratto, and it now comes with the latest and greatest Chromium build (featuring advanced HTML5 capabilities, Adobe Flash support and H264/AVC video acceleration).

 

Changelog for version 7.0

  • the underlying operating system has been moved to Raspbian Stretch; the overall performance is sensibly better and HTML5 videos play a lot smoother;
  • some improvements on code and bug fixes (the most important ones concern WiFi networks’ discovery);
  • minor improvements on code.

You can download the Raspberry operating system from SourceForge.
