Raspberry Webkiosk 6, a new version for a great Raspberry Pi function

Dumb clients with Raspberry Webkiosk

Here we have told you about the Raspberry Pi functions as a minipc, something that many know and try. But if these functions are good, even better are the functions as a dumb client. These uses are interesting for the low cost of Raspberry Pi and the great service they provide for places such as libraries, schools, hospitals, hotels, Internet cafes, etc ...

For this, several developers specialized in developing for Raspberry Pi have created an operating system called Raspberry WebKiosk and they are already in their sixth version.

WebKiosk 6 is an operating system for Raspberry Pi SBC boards that uses Raspbian Lite as a base to offer minimal services that work on Raspberry Pi. These minimal services they focus on a web browser with its web technologies and being able to store it on a pendrive via usb port. We can also download things and write texts and print them. The images can also be seen but we will not be able to edit them like a professional.

Raspberry Webkiosk uses Chromium as the default web browser

As a web browser,Raspberry Webkiosk uses Chromium in its latest version. But it also has some own scripts, made by the developers of the project, which allows the use of several users without being a computer guru: we just have to turn it off and on.

This simple process will allow us to use it in complete safety without the team saving our private data or our browsing data, we will be able to use it at almost any time. Raspberry Webkiosk is an operating system available for Raspberry Pi, for the latest versions of Raspberry Pi. We can download it from this link and then use it on as many computers as we want. We just have to remember that the devices must be connected to the same network. And this will make us have a dumb client system to use anywhere and for little money.
