Internet & Networking "How do the latest versions of each browser compare? For this prizefight, we looked at Microsoft Internet Explorer 7, Microsoft's first new Internet browser since 2001 and Mozilla Firefox 2, Mozilla's update of its popular Firefox 1.5 browser released in November 2005." This will be the last Firefox 2 vs. IE7 article. I promise.

In a managed environment, you can set group policies to prevent the user from changing the proxy settings in IE. Also you can prevent them from installing software other than what you provide them with (through SMS or ZenWorks for example).

But if you deploy FireFox, then you have no convenient way, to my best knowledge, of preventing the users from playing with the proxy settings. I agree that most people wouldn't do that, but like I said, a number of our users are high schoolers with a high addiction to sites like myspace.com (they would use Google cache to go to myspace.com)
