Glubble for Firefox a must for ALL Parents with Kids Online

Posted by pinggu on December 30, 2007

The internet is full of many wonderful things. However, it is also host to any number to bad influences that parents dread their children being exposed to. Because of this, many companies produce filtering software in an effort to help protect children from profanity.
GLUBBLE FOR FIREFOX
Glubble‘s approach is a little different. Rather than make a futile attempt at blocking everything bad on the internet, it uses a whitelist of sites that are ok for kids to see. It brings together a community of parents, allowing the user to set a pre-defined white list and even use the whitelists of other users. It’s the same sort of powerful social design that make add-ons like Adblock+ so effective.

Not only is Glubble great at keeping kids’ online time rated G, but it also gives Firefox a much more appealing and user friendly look, giving every member of the family an individualized login and portal page, even for the Adults.

Glubble works on Windows, Mac, and Linux, and can be downloaded directly here.

    hi

  2. Hi, my name is Bartel Scheers and with the Glubble Team. Thanks for writing about Glubble. You’re right we’re focusing at the wonderful things that are available for kids online, not so much at the bad influences. That differs Glubble from most other parental control software. We indeed believe that together with other parents we can build a better web for our youngest children.

    You might find it interesting to know that we have released Glubble Family Edition for public download at http://www.glubble.com. I hope you want to give it a try and see for yourself that we have improved Glubble to a point that it is fair to say it’s a new product altogether. We’ve not only improved and extended functionality and features, but also more than doubled our free default whitelist.

    Thanks again for writing about Glubble.

    Best regards,
    Bartel Scheers
