Website of the Day: KidRex

OK parents, have I got the best website for you today. If your kids have their own computers, or they have their own "kids" account on your home computer, set this website as the homepage, pronto! Powered by Google Custom Search, KidRex is a fun child-friendly search website that uses Google SafeSearch technology to eliminate inappropriate material. I tested it out with words like sex, penis, intercourse, and Britney naked, and every search term returned a "Oops! Try Again" response — which means it works! Although it claims to not be 100 accurate, it worked pretty flawlessly for me. And considering what kids see via the regular Google search engine, this seems to be a pretty great alternative. It's in the same awesomeness league as the BlackBerry for tots.

Do you have a cool site like this you want to share with geeksugar readers? To learn how to post your favorite websites to our Website of the Day group,

Umm, this doesn't work in google Chrome at all. No search results come up no matter what I search for. The results page is just white with the search box. Of course it works great in FF.

This is a great site! About year ago I was remolding my kitchen and I googled "knobs" and a whole bunch of horrible stuff came up. So when I saw this site I thought of testing "knob" and everything was relevant to kitchen knobs and nothing bad. I set this as my homepage as well as my kids!

This seems to have different weighting, as well. Try just 'Britney'. The first four results are articles about Britney's kids, with the word kids and children all over, even before her own home page.
