Im looking for a solution to run a basic infoscreen, on a Apple Mac Mini (under osx).

I want the screen to simply switch between a couple of info screens. Ideally it would be able to read html, as that would make our website-admin able to keep it updated by simply dumping a couple of html documents in a specified folder.

I have been googling but haven't had any luck finding a solution.

Do anyone have an idea for a piece of software that could help me?

It sounds like what you want is kiosk software.

Some browsers (Opera and Chrome) have a kiosk mode, but this may be too simple.

There is software out there (eCrisper, wKiosk) that might do the trick, but they cost money.

A quick search for 'open source kiosk' turns up some addons for Firefox and other results, but I don't know if they can be adapted to run on the Mac.
