Fingerprint Scanners

I have been reading about the affordable (< $100) fingerprint scanners. It 
seems they all want to dig themselves into the OS and replace the 
authentication routines for logging in to the PC. I don't want this at 
all. The only thing I want is for my app to read a username from the 
device after it scans a fingerprint. Many users will be adding data with 
this app from a single user login (like a kiosk).

There is potential in the fact that these scanners can authenticate web 
sites. Therefore, if there is no other way, I am thinking I can serve a 
web page up from the Rev app itself and grab the username from a submitted 
form. Will this work?
