More on the browser OS – from Microsoft Research

After talking about how your next operating system is not going to be related to Windows or Mac or Linux (hint – you are reading this post using it… more details on our Annual report and predictions paper), I came across this research from Microsoft (direct to the PDF here) that talks about how to construct a secure browser OS given the fact that web browsing has moved quite substantially from viewing static web pages to almost running an OS on the browser.

The MS guys portray a secure browser constructed as a multi-principal operating system, while covering a lot of security fundamentals that are missing or lacking a proper implementation in modern browsers. A highly recommended reading and definitely worth following up on.
