feuersalamanderThe internet browser for kids
package2010-03-11 New Version 2.5
refined security, color schemes

Why a browser for kids?
A few of the features:
  • Simple: You won't find a browser that's easier to use than the Feuersalamander.
  • Secure: There is no address bar (for the kids) that triggers Google's (image) search. Configuration ist encrypted and locked with the parent's password.
  • No Popups or New Windows: There's only page active at all times. New windows to open are treated as normal links.
  • Intelligent Whitelisting: The parents decide which pages are safe to surf to. If you want to you can 'blind-trust' sites so that all pages that are linked from there are allowed, too. Which means if you have found a site that you can trust, you don't have to explicitly allow sites that are linked from there.
  • Symbolic Bookmarks: Kids can manage their own bookmarks with little icons (the parents too).

New in version 2:

  • One-Click Child Safety: Full control over the kid's computer account! With just one click harmful activities are eliminated, and the computer only executes what the parents have allowed.
  • Time quota control: The maximum amount of time the kid is allowed on the computer can be easily specified. After reaching the limit, the computer shuts down - and logging in is only possible again the next day.
  • Executables: Installed software can be made accessible with bookmarks, too! So you can allow the mailer or certain games - inside the child safety!
  • Exchange: Allowed sites and bookmarks can be exported and imported again - for the simple exchange with friends or relatives (of course, allowed sites can only be imported by parents...).
  • Low priced: There is no monthly fee like with so many other browsers for kids, and only the one-click child safety feature costs a very affordable sum of money.
  • No installation: All this works without installation even in an account with limited user rights! Just start it, and the PC is family safe.
