The only GPO that would actually pull this of is Software restriction policy.
This is a policy that enables (or disables) execution of specific files, files in directories or hashcoded files.

The policy is located in Computer Configuration --> Policies --> WIndows Settings --> Security Settings --> Software restiction Policies.

Hi rhandels, thank you so much for your reply, software restriction policy is for computer specific settings, and the policy eventually need to be applied on OU.

Could you please assist me to know, how can I apply for specific Group, meaning that when any user will be member of this group will be able to access IE and Safari not any other browser.
Do you mean the entire setup of the policy?
I don;t mind helping you into the right direction but there is a multitude on articles how to setup Software Restriction Policy.

This document is a good way to start.

Regarding the users. You only want to add the policy to a specific set of users? Due to the fact that this is a computer setting you will need to add it to an OU were computers reside in. It is possible to add WMI templates but still, it will apply to computers so to a specific group of users will not work i'm afraid.

Can't you somehow make sure not that specific users log on to specific computers?

You could also try to use AppLocker but i believe it is added in 2008 or 2012.
