Freeverse Updates BumperCar
8:59 AM | Blake Buck | Comment on this story

Yesterday, Freeverse Software announced an update to its popular application, BumperCar. BumperCar is an award-winning web browser designed for kids, with a simple interface and extensive parental controls. The update brings BumperCar to version 2.0.3, and includes the following changes:

-A new menu item: "Add to Blacklist", which adds the address in the frontmost window to the blacklist (After asking for the password). The window containing that page will then close.

-The use timer now counts the entire time the browser has been running, instead of ommiting idle time.

-There is a new checkbox in the advanced prefs: "Whitelist overrides content protection", defaulting to off. If this is checked, then a site that appears on the whitelist but also contains curse words or high ratings will not be blocked. If it is not checked, then the curse filter will overrule the whitelist and block the page.

Download the most recent version of BumperCar from the Freeverse website. While not technially Mac gaming news, Freeverse is one of the larger Mac game developers. To see the announcement, or to download BumperCar, click the links below.
