Could you make me an extension that blocks everything EXCEPT adult content?

All these useless websites are interfering with my uh, um, browsing!

Can this be used at a point of entry, like Apple's Time Capsule, so it need not be loaded separately onto every computer on a network?

That is not possible. It is developed as a Safari extension. Perhaps You could script the installation? Updates are managed automatically through Safari.

Does this have any advantage over Open DNS?

OpenDNS Home or OpenDNS Family both provide excellent DNS services quicker and more reliably than many ISPs that I've used. 19 Servers scattered about the world for redundency

Can be set up in your router to cover all your internet activity at home, and/or on individual machines. “Family” filter is preconfigured.

You have unlimited whitelist and blacklist to customize blocking. There is a whitelistmode only to fully control the permitted websites. I work on new features for logging and complete url analysis.

According to Sophos AV, "Access [to the developer's website] has been blocked as the threat Mal/HTMLGen-A has been found on this website."

Hmm...amend my comment to apply to the MU link above. The direct URL, , elicits no warning.

Yes, this seems a bit questionable all around. The developer web site is very minimal with information about the product, the developer and any support. In fact, there seems to be no direct page with information on the Safari version; only a Chrome info page. Also, the support or contact method is an ambiguous "info" email address.

This software should be seen as a "proceed with caution, use at your own risk" solution. I, personally, will not be trying it out.
