Weblock

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)"

well, our upcoming solution maybe just right: blocks the browser entirely, no search function any more, just one URL possible (of course links away from that URL, too). So depending on the URL you allow surfing is much limited. please send requests for release information (soon) to: <WebLock@onlinehome.de> thanks!
