Microsoft researchers devise new browser with stronger security

Quote:
February 23, 2009 (IDG News Service) Microsoft Corp. researchers are developing a new Web browser that they say could offer a far greater degree of security than Google's Chrome, Mozilla's Firefox or Microsoft's own Internet Explorer.


The browser, called Gazelle, relies on a "browser kernel" -- 5,000 lines of C# code -- that helps enforce security rules to prevent malicious access to the PC's underlying operating system, according to a recently published paper (download PDF).


So far, Gazelle is just a prototype, with other parts of the browser based on Microsoft's IE. Due to the complex nature of the way it processes Web pages for better security, the browser's performance is more tortoise than gazelle, but the researchers say a few tweaks will make it faster.

Interesting. Good way to reinvent themselves in the browsere game is to have a competing internal project against IE.
