Every now and then we have unique requirements to deploy, manage, and support the web browser that runs on desktops.

Internet Explorer 9 (beta) supports following tools:

Blocker Toolkit : The Blocker Toolkit allows to block Internet Explorer 9 installation through Automatic Updates. This toolkit helps them to manage when and how to deploy Internet Explorer 9 in the organization. For example, they can test application compatibility before deployment.

Internet Explorer Administration Kit (IEAK) : One can use the IEAK to create custom, branded versions of Internet Explorer 9 that they can deliver as standalone packages or with other software and services. They do not need to install an operating system at the same time, and they can update customizations and branding without reinstalling Internet Explorer 9.

Unattend Settings : By using an Unattend.xml file during Windows 7 installation, you can customize Internet Explorer 9 during operating system installation. Settings that they can customize include the home page, favorites, search providers, feeds, Accelerators, and Web Slices.

Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT) : The ACT contains tools and documentation for evaluating and mitigating application compatibility issues before deploying Windows 7. The ACT includes the Internet Explorer Compatibility Test Tool (IECTT) to analyze Internet and intranet websites for potential compatibility issues.
