ContentBarrier X 10.0, Web filtering software for Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar, is now available from Intego. Announced at the recent Macworld Conference & Expo in San Francisco, the new version builds on the capabilities of the existing ContentBarrier.
It adds the capability to filter keywords from e-mail, Web pages, newsgroups, and chat rooms. ContentBarrier X 10.0 -- targeted to parents, employers, or others who want to control content delivered to computers running Mac OS X -- boasts customizable categories for customizing Web content blocking options, an anti-predator function blocks that blocks language typically used by child predators in online chat rooms and over instant messaging applications, multiple user support, Internet access control, automatic log e-mail notification, and a Newsgroup/Email/Download Control. With the latter, users can preset whether children can access newsgroups or e-mail.
ContentBarrier can also restrict Internet access to include only certain times or days. With its Automatic Log the application keeps a log of all Web sites visited. The update also sports a more complete list of keywords for e-mail, web page, and chat room content filtering easier than ever. You can even define their lists to extend the content that is restricted via the application.
What's more, ContentBarrier includes the latest version of Intego's NetUpdate automatic software update engine. You can program updates for specific days and times, and NetUpdate will automatically check the Intego server for updates for all Intego programs installed on your Mac.
ContentBarrier X 10.0 supports Mac OS X 10.1.1 or later and is available at the Intego Web site. The cost is US$59.95, and includes both Mac OS X and Mac OS 9 versions of the program.
