    Internet Browsers

    Are there any internet browsers that can pull down preferences from Workgroup Manager which isn't Safari?

    We have two home pages for staff and students therefore the preferences need to be pulled down to match what WGM Group they are in.

    Safari just seems to be a bad internet browser and is cause a fair amount of annoyance.
    What web browsers does everyone else use?

    I've tried Firefox, Campino and about to try Opera, however Opera looks disgusting and very tempted to skip trying it.

    I don't think so no.

    I know in Windows you can run FireFox through a network share and then edit files in that share to stop people changing things. I don't know if you can do the same for Mac.

    IIRC you can apply plists as settings files via group via WGM. Pretty sure one of Ross's how-to-guides has something in there, if not then Home ‎(MacEnterprise)‎ could help.
