    Internet Explorer Expanded Security Privileges in IE

    I am writing a web-crawler with javascript, but in order to view external pages violating the same origin policy, I need to enable the UniversalBrowserRead privilege. This works fine in firefox, but IE doesn't seem to have anything similar.

    I've been looking on the net and I can't find anything talking about this, so does anyone know how to do this perchance?

    Thanks a bunch

    IE's not rubbish. it might not produce standards compliant markup, but it remains one heck of a powerful platform (hence it's targeted so readily by hackers and crackers).

    UniversalBrowserRead is a Moz security setting (it's part of Mozilla the application, so not something you'll find in any browser, rubbish or otherwise).

    anyway, how's this application meant to work. it's not a website you're running, surely, so why the need for cross-browser compliance? of course, if this a website you're developing and you want to fiddle with user's security settings, then I suggest ...

    YOU GO TAKE A RUNNING JUMP ...

    IE has an equivalent in the HTA platform. That's what you are given.
