If you need to filter this is how it should be done.

Not sure if this is any better than Macs built in filtering Parental Controls, but Intego software has a good reputation.

'ContentBarrier sets up a protective wall around your computer. Its predefined categories let you choose what you dont want your children to see, and you can also create your own custom categories.

ContentBarrier blocks adult web sites, sites with subjects not fit for children, and even blocks chats when predatory language is used. It blocks offensive content coming from the Internet. ContentBarrier works with multiple users; if you have several children, you can set different criteria, corresponding to their age or maturity

You can choose whether they have access to newsgroups or whether they can download files. You can set the program to let them only use the Internet at certain times, and on specific days.The program can even send you e-mail, automatically, when certain events occur. ContentBarrier keeps a complete log of all web sites visited, whether blocked or not.'

    Intego software is always very flashy, sometimes very good, and sometimes rather buggy... my biggest problem with Intego stuff is that its relatively expensive, and Intego make it very hard to find out what the yearly renewal fees for their various products are (they studiously avoid listing renewal fees anywhere on their website)... oh, and their awful slogan "we protect your world"... sigh...

    Yes, however good the deal is for the product, there is that (expensive) renewal. I got VirusBarrier as part of a MacHeist bundle a few months ago and will probably chuck it when the year is up because of that.

What do you think?
