Is it true that a YouTube for kids is under development?

Reports are popping up across the web that Google is developing a kid-safe version of YouTube for children ten and under. YouTube already has a Safety Mode (just look at the bottom of any page) but complaints abound that often the video ads are racy and/or that inappropriate content still gets through.

It is not yet known whether the new YouTube for kids will have ads or not.

Look for Safety Mode settings at the bottom of any YouTube page.
