For many parents, being able to control how much time your children spend on the internet and making sure they don't visit the wrong sort of sites is very important. GiddyUp (formerly CutX) is a kid safe browser then ensures they are protected from adult and senior content on the internet.
GiddyUp is a secure web browser designed for children that's frequently used by schools to ensure that they surf child safe content. GiddyUp easily allows parents and teachers to restrict access to web sites, operating system, system settings and stops them from downloading files and applications.
In terms of performance, GiddyUp works very similar Safari because its based on the same WebKit engine. Customizing and controlling GiddyUp is easy and the browser is very stable. However, like many such applications, it can be rather indiscriminate in the way it applies the child block and can censor perfectly safe material which may cause parents and teachers more hassle than its worth.
Overall though, GiddyUp is an excellent choice for parents and teachers that need a basic but functional browser for children.
