Pekr, 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 are: 1) Get the IE Administration Kit http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ieak 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 component 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 Regards
