Even though the browser market is already fiercely competitive,A browser security tool from dell is now being offered for free.DELL Secure Browser is a version of Firefox, modified to be secure by running a copy of the actual browser in a sandboxed operating system.Browser sandboxing is proved to be an effective safeguard against web-based attacks.So,If you want a no-fuss way to increase web browser security,DELL Secure Browser is a good choice.
Secure Browser is designed to involve confining the browser to a “sandbox,” an isolated environment with controlled access to the rest of the system.,so even if you find yourself on a site that could harm your computer, the harmful effects are contained within the browser sandbox.When using the Secure Browser any changes or malicious files inadvertently downloaded from the Internet are contained within the secure browser, keeping the underlying OS and computer secure from hostile changes.Any changes resulting from browser activity may be quickly and easily reset to effectively “undo” such changes and return it to its initially installed state. This makes it much easier to clean a system and bring the user back to full productivity.
Secure Browsers also offer the option of specifying “white” and “black” lists to control what processes may be started or what sites may be visited. it makes it easy to keep users away from known bad sites, and thereby limit their exposure to attacks.

Bob Kelly, senior product manager of Dell Kace, revealed that the browser utilizes something called “application virtualization”,a technology from Computers in Motion, a company that specialized in application virtualization.The standout feature of Secure Browser is sandboxing.As a matter of fact,Secure Browser really is Firefox, with a secure wrapper.If you have already install a firefox on your computer,you had to uninstall your current version of Firefox to get it to work — it’s obviously designed to be installed as the default browser on new computers.
And this Secure Browser is probably the bulkiest browser in the market. The installer itself takes up more than 73.6MB!As we have talked above,the Secure Browser can’t be installed if you don’t uninstall Firefox.Therefore,I don’t like DELL Secure Browser personlly.In fact,I would rather choose Google Chrome,the other popular browser that’s sandboxed — and it doesn’t require a 75MB download!
Download DELL Secure Browser.(windows x86 only as of now,It also Required to enter an email to download it)
If you are not a firefox fans,I guess you may want to try Google Chrome,the other popular browser that’s sandboxed.Download Google Chrome.
