"Parental Controls" For Firefox

For parents of young children, there is a Firefox extension that adds a parental control system to the browser. Its called Glubble and can be set to suit the reading ability of your child. Yet, the Firefox interface is unchanged. An important feature for parents to know is that the "Glubble Altered Search" has the Google and Yahoo search engines show results from children's trusted Glubbleword rather than the web. This feature will help your child avoid potentially dangerous sites/images resulting from a typo.

Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...

This is one of the many features that makes Firefox an attractive alternative to the other browsers when it comes to child safety on the Internet. I tried it -- easy to install and use with few hickups. Highly recommended.
