Different settings for different sites

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Benoit Martin, Jan 18, 2008.

  1. We have an internal web app that requires a certain set of settings (no
    caching among others). The problem, is if we apply group policies for these
    settings then all web browsing will happen without caching which is not
    acceptable in our situation.
    I am aware that there are no user profiles built-in IE7 but is there any
    other way to have different sets of settings based on the sites accessed?

  3. thanks for the reply Rob,

    if I take the example of caching because it is the one of biggest concern to
    us right now, how would different security settings affect caching. If
    caching is turned on in the browser, I don't see how I can make the browser
    not cache pages for that particular app (or even the intranet for that
    matter).

    Also, could you please explain what you meant by "custom protocol handler"?

    thank you

  6. If it is a web app that you have control over why not just send out pages
    marked no-cache?
