Freeverse Releases BumperCar OS X Browser
7:55 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Freeverse Software has announced the release of BumperCar, a MacOS X browser for kids that incorporates a host of safety features for your little ones. Designed to be both fun for kids and reassuring for parents and teachers, BumperCar filters objectionable web content, limits the sharing of personal information, (such as a child's address or phone number), and offers unprecedented parental controls.

Here's more from the official press release:

Recipient of a coveted MacWorld "Best of Show" award, BumperCar is the single best tool to help manage your child's web experience. BumperCar offers simple "Low", "Medium" and "High" safety settings, as well as the ability to customize all of its features in detail. BumperCar filters profanity, forces Google to use a "Safe Search" mode, allows you to specify the hours your child can spend online and offers special School, Home and PreSchool modes.

Ian Lynch Smith, president of Freeverse has said, "BumperCar isn't just about keeping kids away from the bad stuff, its also about giving them a colorful, fun environment in which to play and explore. We believe BumperCar will be a tremendous benefit for parents, schools and kids alike."

BumperCar is built specifically for Mac OS X and makes use of the latest OmniWeb technology, providing the stable foundation necessary for any modern Mac Web browser.

BumperCar has a suggested retail price of $49.95 and is available at the Apple Stores and other fine Mac retailers. It is also available directly from Freeverse.
