if you're in a corporate environment, then, why don't you look at doing this as part of a proxy - inspect an outgoing request, if its http/https deny it - there are proxy's already that can do this - obviously you also have to add rules to your external & dmz firewall etc to make sure that if they bypass the proxy they cant get out

[edit] thse links may help you get started - there are a few more of such out there on the web
