App4mac has introduced Giddy Up 1.0.3 (, an update of the web browser designed for kids. Mostly used by schools, it can also be used at home for all children of a family. The new version tweaks the interface and fixes some bugs.

Giddy Up — built with the Apple Safari Engine also named WebKit — allows you to restrict access to some web sites, the operating system, system settings, the downloading of files and applications. It was developed with the intention to add maximum security and protection for kids, according to the folks at App4Mac.

Giddy Up has a wide range of additional functions that allow users to customize their web browser to suit their parental needs and requirements. No programming skills are necessary.

Giddy Up 1.0 requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher. It costs around US$48, though version 1.0.3 is a free update for registered users.
