Doug Turner writes, "I am on my paternity leave and I get this idea. I want a way that I can set my son down in front of Mozilla (when he is old enough), and make sure that he can not go to any site that I think are not for him.

"I know that there are a bunch of programs that do this like 'cyber-babysitter' or whatever, but they have two problems: (a) they are doing the rating instead of me, and (b) domains pop up faster than these pieces of software can keep up with.

"So the idea is to have a button on Mozilla that will lock the navigator to a paticular domain/website. I have a proof of concept working now. It is missing a few things but it is a start. Check it out... (requires Mozilla)"

The message, and the inforamtion on the dude's website, do NOT make this clear. they say "will lock the navigator to a paticular domain/website." What is your interpreataion of this? It does not say "lock on to", and seems to suggest that pushing said button will exclude the specified domain. Perhaps the code does work this way, but it's description does not imply this. Dont blame me for other's poor documentation.

Judgement? This is a design discusion, there is only better and worse, not right and wrong.

Oh yeah, eat me, troll boy.
