Editors' review

Despite a short trial period, this effective application puts you in control of your children's surfing activities. My Kids Browser provides a safe and child-friendly online environment for your kids by allowing you to manage accessible Web sites. The program comes preloaded with fun and educational Web sites for kids, along with a number of password-protected features for parents.

Like similar programs, you can easily add and remove appropriate sites from its white list. What impressed us most is its ability to analyze and preview Web sites before adding them to the list of approved sites. My Kids Browser's simple and easy-to-use interface offers standard navigational browser buttons like Back, Forward, Home and Refresh. You also can set it to take over your entire screen upon launch or at every startup. You can disable other browser applications, enable or disable the Print button, view the user history and set time limits for Internet usage.

Our only complaint is its 15-day trial period, but aside from that restriction, we highly recommend My Kids Browser to parents who want safe, yet fun online browsing for their kids.

    "Kidzui Browser is ten times better"

    March 12, 2010   |   By mrcsg3

    Version: My Kids Browser 2.0.4

    Pros

    Not many... I wasn't impressed at all. Kidzui has a better interface and wider variety of programs to use... And it's free.

    Cons

    Very boring. Not a lot of stuff for kids to do. After 5 minutes my child and i were bored to tears. Kidzui is free and way better. This thing isn't worth 30 dollars

    Summary

    Boring, boring, boring.

    "Not good enough!"

    October 09, 2009   |   By Momby1977

    Version: My Kids Browser 2.0.4

    Pros

    It locks down the desktop.

    Cons

    It disables shortcut keys permanently. As long as the program is installed your shortcuts will not work. Not easy to customize either.

    Summary

    I tried this and didn't like it. Not worth the cost. I ended up downloading Kid Savvy PC which has all of the same features and a few more.
