Tristan Nitot writes: "Three (yes, 3!) new Gecko-based browsers for Mac OS X were announced today by AppMac.

"wKiosk 2.0 is for public internet terminals. wKids 1.0 is for kids and includes a simplified UI, a white/black list system for URLs and runs in full screen mode. wDesk 1.0 is for professional use and includes filters and admin tools to limit non-professional usage.

"Evaluation versions are available on their web site, along with screen shots. By using OS X's Unix foundations and Gecko stability, AppMac expects excellent MTBF (e.g. at least a full week), which is a must for a system to provide public access to the Internet."

#4 MTBF of 1 week?

I expect the programs that I run to last longer than a week before bombing off. Maybe one week is good compared to the rest of the industry, but I expect MTBF values of months, not 7 days.
