Firefox launches anti bullying browser


by David Allen

Firefox will be stepping up the fight against cyber bullying according to the company behind the browser, Mozilla.

It will be releasing a new purpose built browser in conjunction with the organisation Beatbullying.

The Firefox browser will be available for both Macs and PCs, and will lead the organisation’s campaign to make the internet a safer place for young surfers.

CyberMentors has been set up by Beatbullying to offer help and advice from fully trained mentors to anyone that is being bullied online.

The mentors are young people who volunteer to offer support to others who are being bullied.

The new browser will offer access to some new tools which will offer fast and easy access to CyberMentors, a chat service where victims can speak with other bullying victims, as well as advice as to how the user deal with their own particular situation and issues.
