Kids Playground Web Browser

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This free Web browser limits the sites your kids can access, but its small feature set and lack of flexibility don't exactly earn big points. Kids Playground Web Browser's commonplace interface, with its standard navigational buttons, is easy enough to operate. Additionally, it houses several Flash- and Java-based games your kids might enjoy. Kids Playground Web Browser offers a preloaded list of child-friendly Web sites and you can add your own in the Adult Area. This section is password-protected by a default password, but there's no option to change it. No other parental controls, such as the ability to control PC and Internet usage, are included. Kids Playground Web Browser doesn't have an address bar, so when kids are using it, they can only go to approved sites. However, it's easy enough to bypass the program's browser window and access a different, unrestricted browser app. It can be used free of charge, but parents won't be able to rely on this simplistic browser program to control their kids' Internet usage.
