The Secure Browser
A sandboxed version of Firefox 3.6, from Dell of all people
The Secure Browser uses virtualization technology to provide a safer web experience to users and organizations. When using the Secure Browser any changes or malicious files inadvertently downloaded from the Internet are contained within the secure browser, keeping the underlying OS and computer secure from hostile changes. Any changes resulting from browser activity may be quickly and easily reset to effectively “undo” such changes and return it to its initially installed state. This makes it much easier to clean a system and bring the user back to full productivity. Secure Browsers also offer the option of specifying “white” and “black” lists to control what processes may be started or what sites may be visited. Limiting browser use to specific sites can control usage and protect from cross site scripting attacks. By specifying which sites are to be blocked, it makes it easy to keep users away from known bad sites, and thereby limit their exposure to attacks. In controlling what processes may be started, the browser will not run programs or plug-ins without permission to do so, which allows for the prevention of many attacks before they can even be initiated.
Anyone tried it yet?

I downloaded and installed it on mt 32-bit system. The installer reported that it was successfully installed but when I tried running it, my standard FireFox came up and the performance of the browser was unbelievably slow. When I tried to open a new tab whatever site I attempted to go to would never load.
When I decided to remove it, the uninstaller didn't remove it all and even a system restore couldn't get rid of it. I ended up restoring from an image file that I luckily had just taken before installing the KACE browser.
I guess the install didn't get things installed correctly but it left a bad taste in my mouth so I don't plan to try installing it again.
