I used to do something like you described but using a piece of software
called Tinyproxy ( https://tinyproxy.github.io/ ). Like the name suggests,
it's pretty small and easy to configure. I was using it as part of a
linux-based web kiosk. I would configure the browser to point at the
configured proxy server, and that would lock a user into a specific website
or set of websites.
I have some more info on the kiosk end of things here if anyone is
interested. These may not be a totally complete set of instructions, so use
at your own risk!
