Free Fullscreen Kiosk Web Browser

Building a Fullscreen Kiosk Web Browser using Flex and AIR. There are a number a fullscreen web browsers/plugins out there, but not all of them are free. We have used a couple different ones over the years for kiosks that need Web Browsing capability or to display an HTML based kiosk application. Next time I can just build one, all I need is a few lines of code and a touchscreen monitor. I am impressed with AIR’s webkit (HTML Component), it is light and loads pages pretty fast. Here is an example of building a serious utility with very few lines of code. The core fullscreen browser takes only 4 lines of code in Flex 3.
