    The IEBlog had two nifty posts today describing in further detail IE7 parental control features as well as Family Safety on Vista as a whole.

    I haven't used Parental Control software in the past, but one thing I found interesting about this article is that it can block parts of pages, if not the whole thing. Most software I have worked with in the past, admittedly which is dated, would block a page entirely if there is questionable content on it.

    Here is an example of a page with partially blocked content:

    In regards to family safety, Parents can now limit types of games played, applications used, web usage and time limitations on the local PC.

    Really great read, check them out :)
