Filter App for Mac?

Does there exist a FREE Filter App for Mac Snow Leopard where I can block all inappropriate websites like drugs and pornography etc?

You can find that under Parental Controls.

The Mac parental does not provide enough features and control.

Any other ideas?

If you're intending to limit access from just your home internet you could always sign up to Open DNS: http://www.opendns.com/home-solution...ntal-controls/

Yep, OpenDNS is the way to go.

I suggest you try a professional filter for Mac.
I have ever used the Aobo filter for Mac (internet-filter-mac.com). It blocks site by keywords or urls. It maybe what you want. Hope it can help u.

I just installed K9 Web Protection, seems to be what I want.

No idea how it works, but it's blocking everything I ask and has load full of features and control.

Any feedback about K9? It's free too.

Maybe there aren't any in apple store, but you can try some trustful third party website blocking software.
