I couldn't find any info on this. It certainly isn't new, but still interesting.

It seems as if international users doesn't get the SafeSearch options on google.com/preferences. That kind of make sense, since SafeSearch maby doesn't work in other languages than english. BUT – a lot of users want to turn off this feature. And why should that only be possible if you're speaking english? It doesn't make any sense...

And why do they call it SafeSearch? Is it safe, as in secure? How about "PornSearch" or "PornFilter"?

" Safe " sounds more promising. :P

Plus, porn is not all, you also got gambl~ing websites.

It's safe for kids to use. That is why its called SafeSearch.
