Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

Despite a lengthy load time for some Web pages, this application effectively controls kids' Web-surfing activities. KidSurf Child Safe Web Browser provides a fun and safe environment for children to browse by putting adults in control of what they see. Its clear-cut interface displays standard navigational buttons like back, forward and refresh. It also displays a Parent button to easily configure security options.

KidSurf comes preloaded with several fun and kid-friendly Web sites, and you can easily add your own. Additionally, you can assign a menu for individual children that contains their favorite Web sites. The program includes security options for parents such as password protection to prevent kids from modifying program settings or disabling the Stop button. During our tests, the program worked well, though it took quite a while for some of the Web pages to load completely. Nonetheless, you can relax while your children are online with KidSurf.

Developer's Description

KidSurf is a fun, easy-to-use Internet browser software designed especially for kids 3 to 8 years old. KidSurf is a great new way to keep your kids safe while on the Internet. After downloading and installing KidSurf, your child will only have access to sites you choose pop-up menus and unwanted links are blocked, helping to keep your kids safe from unwanted Internet content. And, all of the confusing Internet Explorer options are hidden from view, ensuring that your children won't accidentally click on links that are not meant for them and be lost. Up to 4 children can have their own 'smiley face' menu. So each child can have their own independent set of favorite sites. For Parents, KidSurf includes an option to add password protection so kids cannot return to the computer's desktop. It also includes a timer to limit internet usage.

Version 2.07 features minor bug fixes to prior version.
