A Google Chrome Extension to automatically close Kiosk mode when any window navigates to *exitkiosk*. Based on the "openkiosk" extension, this extension fixes an issue with that extension so that it will work with kiosk apps opened using the chrome -kiosk flag.
This application is intended for use by Kiosk-Mode applications which need to be able to close back to the desktop.
Closes any window (tab) in chrome which contains the characters: 'exitkiosk'. Note that this may interfere with general web browsing. Although it's unlikely any page will contain these characters.
If you are the creator of a kiosk product then this extension may be useful to you as self.close() will not shut the kiosk.
Install this extension and then launch your kiosk app with a shortcut:
"C:\Users\*user*\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --kiosk http://localhost/"
If there are no other chrome windows, the page will be launched as kiosk mode. To shut your kiosk mode full screen app, call:
And the extension will shut the kiosk.
