I realize this is an old thread, but I have a question concerning switching 
to another browser:

Can/do other browsers make use of the IE security zone model or do they 
just have global on/off settings for options like Java? This is what I 
found when loading Opera or Mozilla a few moths back and quickly 
uninstalled them.

At least with IE I have some degree of control over how much functionality 
a site has. In fact, I've edited my setup so that restricted zone is the 
default zone instead of Internet zone. I like the idea of no support unless 
I chose to elevate a site.
