How Can I Manage Third Party Web Browsers with Group Policy

lkuzma
We are a school system that uses Internet Explorer as our default web browser. We use Group Policy to create GPOs to manage the browsers for our users in order to configure their security settings and such. The problem is that we have several browser based cloud applications that are used throughout our school system that don't support IE. This means that we have to also offer Google Chrome and Firefox to our users in order for these cloud applications to work properly. Of course many of our users prefer these browsers over IE and use them all the time despite our best efforts to encourage IE.

My life would be a lot simpler if I could manage Chrome, Firefox and Opera (which we have found appearing on desktops as well) using Group Policy in the same fashion as IE. Does anyone have a solution for this? Surely someone has this same situation. Any guidance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
