I've become a bit of a fan of virtual machines - on those odd occasions when I need to run Windows I do it within a VM on the Mac using
VMWare - which means I have a safe, secure installation I can move around and restore more easily than I ever could on my old PC.
I could see this approach working well in the business world - and so apparently can HP who have taken the idea (sort of) and applied it to the riskiest thing most people use - their web browser.
Enter stage left
Firefox - the HP virtual browser edition. This uses application virtualisation technology from Symantec to contain Firefox within a virtual layer, effectively keeping any dodgy goings on in a sandbox. And just to satisfy everybody, it also claims it will
load those sites that still insist that IE is required. Honestly - some people - who uses IE?
