    So I use the K9 browser app, but I'm trying to block all other Internet browser apps. I don't want to block app downloads and updates. I just want to block Internet browsers. Is there a way to do this?

    You can block Safari under Restrictions. It will remove it from your iPad's home screens. Any other third party browser you just need to remove from the iPad and maybe turn off the ability to install apps under Restrictions.

    Restrictions is pass coded so that only the person with the Passcode can override and install apps, etc.

    I believe so, it's just installing that is barred.
