Squid is perfect for URL monitor and blocking. You'll even find sample
configuration files on the internet for blocking some of the more
obvious adult content, which can be modified to your own liking.
In terms of filtering/monitoring traffic from chat applets to servers,
I'm not sure there is an easy solution. It will be possible to use
squid to determine which chat rooms are visited, but it won't help you
monitor the content.
