If you are fan of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) web browser and you would like your children to use the browser to safely surf the web, I have some good news for you: there’s a customized IE9 version out there specifically aimed at providing a safe browsing experience for children. Microsoft came up with an IE9 version customized by the CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre); the browser provides instant access to CEOP’s one stop shop for internet safety.

What that means is that the CEOP-customized version of IE9 comes with a dedicated Thinkuknow & Bing homepage, features specific CEOP bookmarks, and boasts CEOP and CEOP partner visual search. There are also CEOP and Thinkuknow Jump Lists.


"At Microsoft we always want to provide our customers with the tools to enjoy the web safely and securely," said Gabby Hegerty, Internet Explorer lead in the UK. "The internet has become a central part of everyday life for adults and children, from learning and communicating to working and playing online. As the leading browser provider, it is important we make the appropriate safety information available and build in features to our software which provide families with peace of mind online."

So if you want to get an IE9 version that provides easy access to child safety sites and age-graded web safety advice, a browser that helps children stay safe while browsing the web, get the CEOP-customized IE9 version. You can grab it from the Thinkuknow dedicated webpage here.

This is not the first time that an Internet Explorer version optimized by CEOP is released to the masses. A couple of years ago a CEOP-customized IE8 version was released as well. If it interests you, you can get the browser from this other Thinkuknow dedicated webpage.

And in related news, Microsoft updated it browser to version 9.0.5 as part of the Patch Tuesday program. The update solves 5 privately reported vulnerabilities in IE.
