Editors' Review

This free Web browser is a great way to introduce your kids to the Internet on your terms.

The designers of KidRocket KidSafe Web Browser for Kids went all out on the user interface. You feel as though you're in a space station. The design is colorful and playful without being too loud. We immediately became addicted to the drawing and painting tools, and the math flashcards. The browser worked really well and we loved the setup of its interface. It comes preset with lots of kid-friendly Web sites, such as Nickelodeon, PBS Kids, and Barbie. Each site is presented as a thumbnail for easy viewing and access. We especially liked the time-lock feature that allowed us to manually set a time limit for browser use. The browser also has a lock mode that prevents anyone from exiting, minimizing, or accessing the admin settings without a password.

As much as we loved this browser, we would have liked to have a Help file included. We also wish we had the ability to add our own Web sites to the list of preset sites. Still, we highly recommend this free browser for any parents who wish to keep a watchful eye over their kids' browsing.
