Editors' Review

This free Web browser gives young kids a safer place to browse the Web, although configurations are slim and can't be customized for multiple children.

Firefly Web Browsers' colorfully animated GUI is interactive and fun. Games and homework help for Grades 1 through 8 are accessible on the application's home page. Parents will like that the program blocks every Web page until you've added it to the Approved list. Configurations are password-protected, though there aren't very many options. You'll be able to schedule online-access times, but not per child and only for this program.

We would have liked some other program blocks and schedulers as well to keep kids from launching other browsers and applications. While parents of young kids close in age will appreciate Firefly, those of varying ages will want to locate an application with more configurable options.
