Children's browser available free

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
