Is there a way to detect the kiosk mode URL
I have a site on kiosk on chrome using iframe in which I am opening number of external sites. And each of the sites has their own links with target="_blank". I have no control on those external links. I want to open all those external links inside iframe only or I would need to publish some message for those target=_blank links.I have searched so far and found it that it can't be done. So, I come across the solution to make those sites as kiosk enabled and detect the kiosk URL and open them in kiosk.
By having Kiosk enabled external sites, we will run a script to check all the target=_blank and replace them on external sites. In that way it won't have any impact for those URLs but it will open on Kiosk.

Now, I have one URL with two functionality. One is opening in a normal browser mode and another is to open in a Kiosk mode. I need to detect the kiosk mode URL and open that into Kiosk.
In Kiosk I have many URL and I would like to detect the Kiosk mode URL and open those instead of regular mode.
Is there any way to detect the Kiosk mode URL and open the same?
Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
