For iPhone/iPad/iOs
Check out their quite easy and powerful content restrictions.
Suggestion: Have someone else have the password (or half and half with a spouse) and do the following:
Lock installing apps + remove browser + add apps you need (possible rules: no games, no sports, no entertainment, etc.).
[Occasionally an app will have a built in browser/or need to access a certain website - just go back in to settings (with password) and add that website].
There is time restrictions and more features too.
(May not be enough for teenagers - consult your own advisers - this solution sure beats doing nothing and there is no excuse)

English? ;)
Group Policy Object
Google it. It's too hard to explain. It's mainly used in an Enterprise setting.

I'm desperate for a new filter. I used Gentech a few years but it was super glitchy and slowed my computer. I switched to Jnet but every time Apple updates an OS I lose my internet access, and customer service takes several days to fix it.

I have a Mac, a Windows laptop, an iPhone and an iPad. I want to spend as little as I can while still having appropriate filtering that actually allows me to get work done! Are there any alternatives or do I need to stick with those 2?

Chime in with what?

He feels it's slowing things down, TBH I don't really believe it except if he has a really low specs computer, or if he's talking about internet speed that it is slower (it will be somewhat slower, depending on the current speed.)

I know it's always easy to blame the filter, but it seems quite obvious you have some other issue.

117.4 MB of RAM when you have 16 GB is nothing (one Chrome tab can eat more...), and Calculator crashing doesn't make sense to have any relation to an app that strickly effects internet traffic.
