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)"

Your correct right now but the solution for little kids will not work in 10 years I'd say. By that time even little kid I expect will know how to operate a computer better thatn they 40 or 50 (by that time) counterparts. If they want it they will find a way.
