TUKI Freedom Browser

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Let your kids learn American history online with TUKI Freedom Browser, although some security features are omitted from this free program.

With Microsoft Agent guiding you, the program is easy to operate, but registration requires your name, e-mail, address, and phone number. You can conveniently download several themes from the publisher's site to skin the browser at no extra cost. Parents can add or remove sites from the long list of pre-approved URLs provided in the software about American history, as well as other educational and entertainment Web sites. The program's agent asks interesting trivia, gives encouraging messages, and even reminds kids about their chores.

TUKI Freedom Browser has pop-up blockers, e-mail services, and search tools, essential assets to any browser. Unfortunately, the program snubs security settings to prevent kids from easily closing the program window and accessing other Web browser applications. Options to schedule time restrictions would've been useful as well. In the end, TUKI Freedom Browser works well for younger kids, but safety-conscious parents of older children will need better security options.
