xStand (formerly known as wKiosk) is a Mac OS X web browser built from the ground up to present web-based content or run web apps in a stable and safe way.

Being usually used in public access terminals in museums or libraries, the xStand app may also be set as the default web browser for all members of an organization or company.

Moreover, xStand will help administrators to allow access to only a limited number of web sites, restrict direct access to the operating system and its settings, or to block downloading files and applications from the Internet if needed.

Because xStand is developed using WebKit (Apple's Safari Engine), users will also benefit from all the features this modern technology has to offer.

xStand was created with the goal provide a browser that would provide the same ease of use as any other browser, while also adding maximum protection and security from user interference.

Main features:

  • Two choices: setup xStand as a full web browser or as a presentation system for large screens
  • Monitors and protects the operating system against manipulation
  • Deactivates undesired function keys and system critical key combinations
  • Restricts and prohibits the downloading of files from the Internet
  • Allows administrators to define which domains/URLs the user is allowed to access
  • Automatically processes program restarts in the event of software error
  • Deletes user data at the end of each session
  • Logs and saves all user interaction
  • Customize the user interface (add/remove buttons in the toolbar)
  • Protects the access to preferences
