Ever since my son was born, I was wondering how I was going to handle he's introducing with technology and of course, the Internet.
Although that is probably a few years down the road, I began to research a little how other parents are dealing with a safe browsing experience for their kids.
Of course, a separated PC account should be in order as well as some browser function designed to block unsafe websites. But the main problem is still going to be Google or Bing. Both search engines are highly used but don't have a kid safe switch; you still can find a lot of messy and unsafe results even if you don't type nasty queries!
This is why I composed a list of the top search engines for kids! They'll be safe from dubious content and will only get results appropriate to their age.
Similar to Google on every level. Kiddle has images, news and even a Wikipedia version for kids name Kpedia. In fact, as far as I can figure out it is powered by Google with a Custom Google Search thingy.
If Kiddle was powered by Google, Wackysafe is powered by Microsoft. Claims to block pretty much everything that is unsuitable for children's eyes. Seems to be popular among parents and teachers.
This one just looks cool. But it loads like forever. At first, I thought it was down, in essence sure, it looks cool, but the user experience seems to lack in most places, and it is pretty much updated, I've tried searching for something, and I got a "This site canâ€™t be reached" error.
Claims to be safe and everything WHILE showing you Adsense based ads about whatever product you search for the last time you searched for something. That sucks a lot because many parents don't really want their kids exposed to ads when using a search engine to find more information about a school project or something. safesearchkids.com is again, powered by Google, but the ads turned me right off, and I don't think I'm going to use it or recommend it.
