comment Should I give developers admin rights or leave as power users?
Most of the every day use applications that developers want such as browsers, chat and email clients can either be installed without admin privileges or are web based and do not need admin permissions. What's left are specialized tools for which you can make a case by case basis for usage and installation.

Firefox and Chrome can be installed without admin privileges so the cat is out of the bag there. If the email client is not web based then chances are good it is a paid product which is a corporate expense and subject to oversight. It's just a balance between pain for developers and security for the organization
