My IT Manager doesn't want anyone to be able to download or use Firefox or Chrome. What is the best way to do this?

Thanks,

You can block them from execution using GPO.

User Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\
Don't run specified Windows applications Enabled add firefox.exe, chrome.exe and Mozilla.exe

For that the user would have to be an administrator. If you limit user rights to ordinary users, then they cannot change it..
