There is a pretty good solution for free from M$, if
you can afford to use Windows
The steps to get your custom solution n. 2 working
1) Get the IE Administration Kit
2) Make sure you sign up for the Intranet mode license
(free) which allows the customizations above and
anything that IE can do.
Check the docs on IEAK Profile Manager, wich allows
you to fix/customize any settings. You might find the
IEAK deployment guide helpful to get this done
3) Now the interesting part: With Rebol/View/Pro you
can drive the IE Component the way you want (Gregg
might now about this as I've seen his Clipboard code).
I am very interested on this part although I am mainly
a Linux developer so I can only help providing info
and pointers. My interest is in talking to IE via
rebol for View+IE apps and other cool things.
Unfortunately don't have the time/money to learn
VisualC++ but feel capable of hacking via rebol
There is also someone in the list from neoplanet.com
which might have lots of technical info as they used
to (or still might) provide a browser based on the IE
The options are: a) Get a kiosk mode configuration
with IEAK or b) use IEAK and then plug into the IE
component using rebol library access
Unfortunately there is no good mozilla kit for this.
Nestcape used to have a similar kit but am not sure
where that stands today.
If you need more info on this ping me via IOS
