What are Kids' Web Browsers -- and Do I Need One?

Kids' Web browsers typically offer a selection of kid-friendly content including videos, games, and activities. Some provide a closed environment with no access to the wider Internet, while others use a search filter that will return only age-appropriate results. Most cost money.

For some families, they may be a good short-term investment -- like training wheels for the Internet. One downside is that kids can outgrow them quickly -- and determined kids can defeat them. And you still need to teach responsible Internet use even if your kids use their own browser. —Common Sense Media
