If you’re a developer hosting the WebBrowser control, you’ll want to read Compatibility in Internet Explorer 6 for Windows XP Service Pack 2. This article has details about changes such as:

  • Local Machine Zone Lockdown
  • Object Caching
  • MIME Handling
  • MIME Sniffing
  • Network Protocol Lockdown
  • Window Restrictions
  • File Download Restrictions
  • ActiveX Restrictions
  • Pop-up Blocker
  • Zone Elevation Blocks
  • Binary Behaviors

If you’re a website developer, then check out Fine-Tune Your Web Site for Windows XP Service Pack 2. It covers popup blocking, ActiveX controls, and new restrictions on browser windows.

You may also want to read about “Enhanced Browsing Security”, part 5 of the Service Pack 2 Resource for IT Professionals articles. This article covers some of the same material as previous articles, but oriented to the IT Pro audience, including Group Policy details.
