Safari Only Mode

Is this still an option in Mountain Lion? Seems to be eliminated.

Just for clarity, Find My Mac Safari Only Guest User Account.

It looks like it is gone. I hate it when features are just removed. This feature seemed to fly off the radar. It was like having a ChromeBook for free.

On the plus side, a feature removed from Lion came back called "console". Type in >console in the login box if you have your Mac use the login/password prompt enabled. It will bring your Mac directly to a UNIX prompt. This feature was removed in Lion and came back from the dead. I don't know if anyone on the planet except for me noticed this feature missing in Lion.

Wow...guess it was hidden in there anyway. Guess I didn't think to use that. I don't believe that I have ever used filevault2. Why would they only allow its use when using filevault2? Seems like it was a better feature if it was used with find my mac.

thanks.
