I haven't heard of it before and it looks to be new. The site does not tell anything about the developer or comany, which does not mean anything about whether or not the app is good. But it would be nice, I think, to know the developer's background or have some additional info.

Well, if it continues to perform as it has so far, it might be an answer to not being sure about any link I'm about to click...afraid that the site I'm about to visit may have some weird scripting or illegal content(pics, installers, highjacks, etc) deposited without knowing. Doesn't seem to be a prob. I haven't had a chance to throw many malicious scenarios at it yet, but it appears that everything done in the box, stays in the box.

I think from experience that many folks will have a bit of trouble understanding the concept of sandboxing but I think too that they should almost immediately see the potential.

I don't know enough to say for sure but there may be use here also for our forensics of nasties as the 'box' may be able to be used as an isolated test bed.

I think I'll give it some more attention.

Well, I'm a slacker. Smile

I've had several projects ongoing lately incl a new office setup and haven't even looked at it in several weeks.

The last version I tested caused so much corruption in IE that I couldn't even repair. I had to do a total reinstall(it was a test bed anyway). However, the dev is very sharp and I'm sure he has made many changes and fixes since the last I looked.

Sorry. I know you probably wanted a more conclusive report. Smile
