Site Blocker


I'm rebuilding an old laptop for my son, I want a program installed so when he's logged on he is only allowed access to pre-selected bookmarks i.e

cbbc
jetix.com

anything returns a blanks screen or access denied

I'm looking for a really simple way of doing things so when I allow access to another site its just a case up updating a conf file

I know I sound harsh but he's only 7 and only the other night he done a typo on "x men games" in google :-)

It will be ubuntu 9.04 Jizzing Jakal

Assuming you're using Firefox it appears this add on for Firefox does what you want:
