3 Major problem with this is you can't do a temporary change without forcing a user off or rebooting. If they are already on or have recently visited the site, the DNS is already in the system and the browser will not bother re-checking the entry. This needs to purge the DNS cache to be at all useful.

4 Wish it could display a jpg like dexter in windows.Also I wish that it could sync your added domains to a cloud just like Firefox's bookmarks

3 I don't see why it's essential for the system but it's small and it works so I don't really mind

2 It's only good for blocking a few specific sites, not much other than that. It's not good for protection your kids because you have to enter each site in manually, meaning there will be many bad sites that remain unblocked. A much better alternative for protecting children (or anyone not wishing to see certain content) is Dansguardian.) Also note that with MintNanny blocking www.something.com is different than blocking something.com, so you'd really need 2 seperate entries.

3 It works when it is running, but to start it you need to enter your su-password. I can't find any documentation.

1 useless no options, just yes or no for yout own manual input (I would not be able to block all the f****** porn websites and others on my own), no users (well allowing only disney for all users if whitelist was avalaible is a pitty) ...whitelist ...blacklit ... and well known website!!!

2 /etc/hosts approach is too global, need per-user white list black list etc.

2 too basic since it uses etc/hosts only. google.com would block only google.com and not www.google.com

4 Quite good. Works when u want to stop some sites from opening. And others can have a hard time finding out why it refuses to open!
