Chapter 25
Creating a Spy Browser
In This Chapter
^ Designing the spy browser window
^ Adding the menu bar, toolbar, status bar, and address bar ^ Incorporating spy features ^ Compiling the spy browser
Г hose kids! They always seem to find so many ways to get into trouble, don’t they? The last thing you need to worry about is what they’re doing on the Internet. This is where a spy browser comes in. Using the Browser Construction Kit, you can create a browser that not only tracks the sites your kids access, but also takes periodic screen shots. Now you can see exactly what the tikes are up to. You’ll be amazed at how well kids behave when they know that inappropriate behavior will be caught on film. In this chapter, you build a browser that helps keep your kids’ Internet experience on the straight and narrow, while still allowing free access to all that the Internet has to offer.
