Microsoft Shows World's Most Secure Browser

Microsoft recently showed off what could be the world's most secure browser. Unfortunately, it's not IE 8 -- or any rev of IE, for that matter. The browser is Gazelle, a prototype from Microsoft Research that includes its own browser operating system designed to ward off memory attacks.

Unfortunately, many of these research projects are more show than go. Take Singularity, a desktop OS architected for speed, compatibility and security.

Meanwhile, for the foreseeable future Microsoft's commercial products will use the Vista kernel.
