Microsoft Gazelle

I found some interesting reading about Windows Gazelle , Anyone know anything about this at all please ?

Rumours hint at Microsoft announcing something on Monday.

Web browsers have become ever more important for our computers. Instead of the browser displaying static HTML pages, they now handle complex web applications, ranging from social networking to text editors to online banking, and everything in between. While some browsers have finally started treating the browser more like an operating system (Chrome and Internet Explorer 8), those are just baby steps. The real thing is coming with Microsoft's Gazelle, a research project which applies operating system concepts to the browser.
Quote:
Basically, Gazelle has a browser kernel that sits on top of the operating system. This browser kernel manages the principals, treating them like entities that are dangerous to one another; each principal gets its own sandboxed operating system process. So if an ad box has bad code in it, it won't affect the rest of the page. Plugins are managed as principals, so they get the same benefits. This is a massive stride forward compared to current web browsers.

Applying OS type infrastructure to a browser and an OS are two different things. That being said, these are two different things, but if you weren't implying them being the same then I agree, I'd like to try them both out when they're done..

I see what you are saying, I was just referring to all the news articles referring them to OS Web browsers, and yes, I like to try anything, and everything.

Mozilla came out with Prism, but I don't think it will compare.

I think that this is MS's version of the OS browser. I know it is not an OS, but it is meant to be run as an app on your pc. So it would be like a VM running the Chrome OS.

Make sense?

Interesting. This enhances the security like ten-fold. Unfortunately, the speed will go down. Microsoft seems good at gazelle now but I think until it complies to web standards and becomes really good, I will stick to Firefox.
