Control internet usage for browsers besides IE

By ericalanwinkler ·
I have seen solutions described for controlling internet access for IE using proxy settings and group policy. I have also read tidbits about limiting by site or stopping an individual MAC address from accessing the internet. However, I can't find information that would allow one to control internet access via a third party browser such as Firefox. Are there permissions or controls one can use in Small Business Server 2003 to control access to the internet regardless of the browser being employed?

You could deny access by control of the firewall...

Each browser is required to be 'allowed' internet access through the system firewall.

By denying access through the firewall you prohibit browser access. This would apply to each browser including IE, Firefox, Opera or whatever.

Even if it was installed later by a user, if you specify that a particular browser DOES NOT have access, it won't get out onto the net.

I will want my day staff to use the internet and some night staff - I will want to limit usage based on the account used to login to the workstation.
