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.
