Kid Friendly Browsing with KidZui

Looking for a way to keep the kids busy while you wrap the Christmas presents this year?

kidzui - browsing for kids

KidZui is an addition to Firefox that with one click turns the browser into a kid-safe environment with over a million kid-friendly websites, games, pictures, and YouTube videos.  I do have to say that this service might be a nice gateway to allow younger kids to get on the Web without much need to worry.

Another feature they pride themselves on is when locked down, KidZui prevents kids from closing the browser, downloading files, or opening other applications.

The free Firefox extension is a gateway into a free vs paid membership situation.  If you get a membership via the Kidzui web site, you can get a few more features.  You can see a comparison of the free features versus the paid features via their membership page.  You might also want to check out an alternative extension Glubble for Families.

If you have young ones around the house, KidZui might be worth playing with.

FireNes – Nintendo on your Browser

A somewhat questionable Firefox addition, FireNes promises to deliver you more than 2,500 Nintendo games in your browser.  After doing some research, it appears this addon is fetching games from another online Java powered NES emulator.  Controls are limited to arrow keys, Enter, Ctrl, Z and X – but hey what do you expect?

They are just Nintendo games after all.

You can pickup the add-on via Mozilla’s web site (after registration) or via Softonic.  If your looking for the same thing though without the extension, try these sites:

Enjoy it while it last, cause I am sure it may not last for long.  Ohh and when Mario and the Mushroom Kingdom police come knocking at your door don’t say I didn’t warn you!
