Parents who want to control the content that their children can browse may want to check out a free downloadable browser, ChiBrow. Available from KCS & Associates, the browser is designed especially for children and allows parents to define where their children can search.
The browser works in a different way to filter and blocker software. Whereas filters prevent the displaying of Web pages containing selected keywords, ChiBrow stops the viewing of any sites or domains selected.
The browser maintains a database of allowable sites the child can access in a drop down list at the top of the browser and once the page is displayed, the page can be browsed using the hyperlinks. Each link is verified before surfing can commence and allowable links include those with the same domain or located within a site included in the database.
The user license registration is free although the site may request some personal information.
