Support for Windows 8 Metro apps
I can't seem to get anything to work on this platform
Make a version of k9 that extends itself also to the apps on a windows 8 start menu. One can still download new browsers or use an existing one in the start menu to bypass k9 entirely, the metro apps remain unaffected.
I love K9 and recently upgraded one of my home PC's to Windows 8. It would be great if k9 supported windows 8,
K9 does not filter very well threw the new Window 8 App
The apps in app store create a loop hole into unprotected sites.
Any update in a win8 version of k9?
Currently, K9 does not block traffic through the IE10 browser. I suggest K9 is rewritten to work like PeerBlock, using methods to monitor traffic through the entire operating system rather than via the browser. This means support for Windows 8, which has been out a few months now. Also after bootup, it takes awhile for K9 to get access to its access points so that process needs to improve so that users can start browsing right when the system is done booting. Finally, the last speed improvement is due to the issue of viewing the detailed internet activity view. Instead, the program should be written to load only a certain number of details at a time, and when a user scrolls to the bottom of the page, more automatically load or the user can select to view the next page of details. Some users would still prefer to view the whole list at once as it currently does, and this should still be an option, however currently it slows the browser down and so something should be done about the default viewing method.
Create a version of K9 that works with Windows 8 - blocking both apps and applications. It currently doesn't block apps.
Do you know when Windows 8 CP will be supported?
Windows 8 is now fully supported in our latest version of K9 Web Protection (version 4.4.268) which can be downloaded at http://download.k9webprotection.com/k9-webprotection.exe (for Windows) or http://download.k9webprotection.com/k9-webprotection.dmg (for OS X).

I tested the lates Beta version, and although Win8 is supported, it seems there's a hole regarding Metro apps. For example if youtube.com is place on the blacklist - it will prevent anyone from accessing youtube via a webbrowser, however my simply d/l ing a free metro app (e.g. MegaTube) the user has free access to view what they want on youtube.
Does this work for windows 8 phones?
Windows 8 on this program K9 web protection works correctly, but still there is still a problem - web browser (Mozilla Firefox) to fires automatically when the connection to the Internet and on a piece of browser page will www.bing.com.
Please solve this problem in this program in beta.
Thank you for your attention.
