Chrome gets parental controls with 'supervised users'

Chrome gets parental controls with 'supervised users' Google is providing parental controls through a new 'supervised users' feature that is now in beta.
This means that kids could use their parents' chromebooks (or browser) as a supervised user, allowing the parent to visit chrome.com/manage to review a history of web pages visited, and to manage a block list of sites and other permissions.

Chrome beta for Windows, Mac and Linux has the feature built in now.

But yet it still looks like there's no master key for the passwords chrome stores.... I really wish they would listen to their customers more and not just some marketing spiel about how kids need supervised access. Also does this negate the incognito mode, if not isn't this all a moot point then?
