"Among those riding to the rescue is the team behind the kid-centered KidZui browser -- and now, they've extended their protective presence to the littlest Linux users as well.

"Released in March 2008, the original KidZui browser is a standalone application available only to Windows and Mac users -- a shortcoming remedied with the announcement this week of a cross-platform Firefox 3.0 extension. Aimed at children between three and twelve, KidZui provides "a fun, safe and engaging" way for kids to access the internet, while providing safety features that keep parents in control. Chief among those features is a password-protected zooming user interface that prevents KidZui from closing, allowing parents to attend to other tasks without worrying if their child has wandered into unapproved areas or deleted critical files. Parents can also view their child's comings and goings, as well as having reports emailed to them."
