FoxFilter is a personal content filter that helps prevent stumbling onto inappropriate content and block access to specific content and Web sites. FoxFilter also includes password-protected security features to secure settings, access Tools/Add-ons and access configuration settings. Includes a 'whitelist' feature which allows parents, library/school lab administrators to designate a specific list of sites that can be accessed. This overrides filtering and has been requested by several users.
