MAKI Enterprise of Japan has released Kids GoGoGo, a new Web filtering software for the Mac OS. The company says GoGoGo blocks sexually explicit material, online gambling, and drug information.
To be more specific, Kids GoGoGo filters known adult sites, and unknown adult sites by analogy. It has a prohibitory URL database of 500,000 sites is included. MAKI officials said that, unlike other Web filters, Kids GoGoGo doesn’t slow down your Web browser or network traffic.
An administrator can add a prohibitory URL to database, which is purportedly easy to update. And an administrator or parent can set a password for filter. A site log of a Web browser can be recorded.
Kids GoGoGo requires only 1 MB of memory, and, according to MAKI, works on older Mac models, as long as they’re running Mac OS 8.6 or later. The filter works on any kind of Internet connectivity: modem, Ethernet, TA/Router, cable, DSL, proxy. It’s compatible with Netscape Communicator/Navigator 4.0 or later, Internet Explorer 4.0 or later, and iCab 2.0 or later.

MAKI Web site. MAKI also makes such Mac products as Muwse, a multilingual HTML editor; Magellan, a multilingual e-mail client; MailGoGoGo, a spam filter, Keyboard Menu manager, which lets you control the keyboard menu; and Magical Marker, a presentation application.
