Technological remark: Due to how Web browsers work, you might have to restart your Web browser or clear its cache, so that unwanted Web content can be blocked immediately. For example, if you just (accidently) visited the pornography site www.pornhub.com, and you have configured Armor to use the HappyKids filter, FiregateCS might not block www.pornhub.com until after the browser has been restarted.
