BBC identifies a growing concern over inappropriate Internet content in 2013!

Just spotted this article in October 2013 saying that Google’s move to add parental controls to chrome “… comes after growing concerns over inappropriate content children can be exposed to online.”

I believe the concerns have been there for a number of years and that Google is actually very late in adding such controls that other browsers have had for a long time (e.g. Internet Explorer since at least 2007, long before the BBC appears to have had any concerns over Internet content).

The article implies Google are simply reacting to changing times rather than playing catch-up.
