ZAC Browser ZAC Browser (Zone for Autistic Children) is a web browser designed specifically for children and teenagers with autism and autism spectrum disorders such as Asperger syndrome, pervasive developmental disorders (PDD) and PDD-NOS.

ZAC browser is available as a free download for Windows 98/ME/2000/XP/Vista. History John LeSieur had a grandson named Zack who was diagnosed with severe autism at the age of 3. Because of the autism, the child was often very frustrated when using the computer. In 2008, KidCD 2.0 was released and added a feature that automatically switched icons on the screen.
