For Gecko browsers (Firefox and Co.) see
<http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/components/signed-scripts.html>

IE doesn't have the concept of signed scripts, it uses per zone and per
domain model. For the testing period you can:

1) Tools Internet Options
2) Go to "Security" tab
3) Select "Internet" and click "Custom Level"
4) In "Miscellaneous" section set "Access data sources across domains"
to Prompt.

IE supports the concept of "HTA" (HyperText Applications). Essentially
HTA's provide an interfaceless IE window which adopts normal application
security rights.

Using COM you can read/write to the file system or registry, access program
automation objects (allowing you to automate Office, CorelDRAW, Windows
Media Player and many other apps) and generally do what you like.

For example I've got a little HTA application which reads my Windows Media
Player database and generates playlists compatible with my old PocketPC in
each album's folder.
