...Running the plugin in a sandbox, otherwise known as protected mode, will potentially reduce the seriousness of any code vulnerabilities by isolating it from the system.

This will be good news, as long as the coding is better than Adobe's established norm (i.e. consistently in the top 3 programs that can allow cyber-criminals to hijack your PC).

No, They would be using the same sandboxing as IE's Protection Mode. Which is built into Windows Vista/7. Both IE and Chrome currently use it. See: Mandatory Integrity Control
