Default Parental control

Hi, I guess this might be a tricky question but I wonder if there's any program that can substitute ugly words from Internet Explorer, in the way that I myself control which words that should be prohibited and that I could change for example the word sex to the world apple on all internet websites?

I want to say that Firefox has a plugin that essentially does this, but I'm not sure of it. I'm not at all sure about IE (that's what not using it for a year does to ya).

I just hope your kid isn't a computer genius.

I suggest you try using Firefox and look for a plug in like macdude suggested.

Problem is that you can not un-install Internet Explorer.

Tnx all. I think I have found the extension. It's called Wordblock but I really can't find the .xpi file or any download file. Do anyone have it?
