Let me explain. I am an IT person in a small office. We have recently got new desktops and I installed Google Chrome and Firefox browsers on them. There's one catch -- I need to be able to control what plug-ins are installed in those browsers. The people who will be using these desktops are mostly middle-aged women that will not be trying to hack into these systems, I just need to safeguard against installation of all the " accidental web junk". Like, for instance, I come in today look at one desktop and there's a huge Yahoo BHO bar in Firefox. I asked who installed it and they all said that they didn't do it :) So I need to guard against these kind of "dummy" installations, but unfortunately I can't seem to find any way to do it in Chrome or FF.
So don't tell me that my only option is to use IE and Group Policy objects?
