I installed the Kid Rocket browser on our computer today. I absolutely love it. It allows Jamie to play on the computer safely. I can lock the browser so he can't close it down and mess with files on the computer. It's preset to a bunch of kid friendly sites, like PBS Kids. It's easy for small children to navigate without assistance, but keeps them from accidentally wandering off the site. It's a fast, simple download. If you don't like it, you don't even have to uninstall it, just send it to the recycle bin. Best of all... IT'S FREE!
