Safe Eyes Becomes a Tool for All Families ... Mac and PC!

Top-Rated Internet Filter for Windows Now Also Available for Mac Tiger (OSX 10.4)

ACWORTH, GA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 23, 2005 -- PC-using families and business have long appreciated what a leading product-testing organization recently concluded: Safe Eyes is the No. 1 Internet Filter available. Unwanted sites, content, popup windows, and chat rooms can all be filtered by this fast, effective, and affordable tool.

Now, Safe Eyes 2005 Mac Edition becomes the first world-class filtering software for Macs.

"In the last six months, the requests from Mac users for this type of product have doubled," says Shane Kenny, President of SafeBrowse.com, Inc. "We took a good look at the market and found a real lack of products in this area, so we built the first world-class filter for Mac users."

Safe Eyes 2005 Mac Edition contains the same powerful features as the recently honored Windows version. That means users have complete control over the material they wish to exclude. With 35 different categories from which to choose, separate filtering profiles can be created for each person using the computer.

In another Internet filtering first, Windows and Mac editions can be used interchangeably. When a user logs in on a Mac or PC, their settings follow them -- making it unnecessary to reconfigure the software on either computer. This is beneficial for people or businesses with both Mac and Windows computers.

"When you buy Safe Eyes, you can use either the PC or Mac client software -- or both -- with your account," says Aaron Kenny, cofounder and Vice President of SafeBrowse. "With a single account, Safe Eyes can be installed on up to three computers, with any mix of Mac and PC."

The release of Mac's Tiger earlier this year helped bring Safe Eyes 2005 Mac Edition to market. With supporting plug-ins, the latest version of OSX made it feasible from a technical standpoint.

Safe Eyes 2005 Mac Edition has been tested "on a wide range of hardware including iBook, eMac, PowerMac, PowerBook, Mini, and Cube, and on G3, G4, G5, and Dual G5 platforms," Aaron Kenny says. "In addition to the beta tests, SafeBrowse.com has several types of automated tests that also determine the product's reliability."

Available for OSX 10.4 and higher, Safe Eyes 2005 Mac Edition can be purchased at www.safeeyes.com for $49.95, with a free 15-day trial. And with Safe Eyes 2005, there are no monthly or annual fees.
