Border patrol for Internet Explorer

CNET News.com: "A security start-up is borrowing a technique from the research labs to try to give Internet Explorer PCs relief from Web-based attacks.
GreenBorder Technologies, a venture-backed start-up, plans to release on Tuesday a consumer security tool that puts Microsoft's IE in a virtual sandbox. Called GreenBorder Pro, the product uses virtualization technology similar to what researchers at antivirus companies have been using for years. In a virtual environment, malicious software is allowed to execute, but it can't touch the underlying operating system. "
