Kid-friendly browser designed to keep children away from dangerous sites

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - Seven years ago, 13-year-old Lauren Nelson and a few friends entered an Internet chat room during a sleepover. Within a week, an online predator was e-mailing one of them lurid photos.

"We were chatting with people we didn't know, which was our first mistake, and someone asked for our personal information," she said. "A week later, he sent some inappropriate pictures to one of my friends. We were all scared, and told our parents, who contacted the authorities."

Now Nelson, who is the reigning Miss America, is the centerpiece of a new kid-friendly Internet browser designed to keep children away from dangerous online sites and contacts.
