Geo-location permissions in IE9

IE9 has few HTML5 features. Today i got a chance to use GeoLocation feature in that.
When i accessed this testdrive site
http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/HTML5/Geolocation/Default.html
it show a popup and asking for permission from the user.

You can see that in this screenshot.

IE9 provides an option to remove the permission(s) given but you can’t remove just one website from the list. You have to clear off all the permission given to various websites.

IE9 stores the permission details in the registry under
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Geolocation\HostConsent\

A DWORD value is created under this with the name of the site and the
permission you have given to that website.
