Subject RE: kiosk mode browser
Date Fri, 20 Dec 2002 16:36:48 GMT
We did that here at Lands' End for the system that we put live in our distribution centre.

We use thin client terminals (the brand and model escape me right now) running XP (I think,
it might be W2K) and Internet Explorer 5.5 (I'm quite certain of this). The terminals use
a touch screen disply.

We run in kiosk mode and have found it to work very well for us. We are considering using
Mozilla and Linux in another area, for our Customer Service Representatives, but ours used
the more traditional Microsoft mix as we had a time crunch.

A well designed web app will run very well in kiosk mode. Who needs those back buttons anyway?
