Web Browser for Kids – Surf Knight

By | October 10, 2008

One more web browser for kids is trying to enter the market. This one is called Surf Knight.

Surf Knight is based on Microsoft Internet Explorer (everyone loves IE, right?).

Once you launch it for the first time, it requires you to enter a root password and set some parental settings:

As founder Safari Knight explains: It’s a trident based web browser with child friendly user interface and parental controls. Unlike other online safety products, Surf Knight comes absolutely free and we endorse charitable organizations such as Big brothers Big sisters.

Overall, it’s all really simple, just as it should be. Big navigation buttons, friendly looking start page and clean interface. The only thing which I didn’t like was bad looking (Windows 3.1 style) configuration window. Since it’s the 1st version only, it will probably be fixed.

    Lol, it’s pretty cool actually. it’s a pity it’s based on trident and not gecko, though.

    ie might work for kids as they won’t need much sophisticated features as in FF or Opera. but kids these days are like supermen they can use ANYTHING.
    so you can just use opendns for blocking the UNWANTED and use https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/275 for pretty firefox.
