Microsoft Releases IE8 Kids Edition

For those of us with kids, the Internet can be a scary place to let them play. Sure, they have Disney sites and other kid friendly sites. But, what happens when they accidently misspell a word? Some sites are definitely not appropriate for kids. Ars Technica takes a look at the new IE8 optimized for kids browsing. I’m sure this combined with the Windows Parental Controls, your PC will be a bit safer online for your children. Of course, I really like the conclusion! 🙂 [Emphasis is mine]

If you believe these tools will be useful to you and your kids, we definitely recommend you go ahead and use them; they look like good resources. That said, we’ll repeat what we’ve said many times before: software is there to help you parent, not meant to do the job for you.
