microsoft-research-logoIt looks like Microsoft wants to make the browser war a bit more interesting by coming up with something that will be much more bigger and better than the current web browsers in the market.

Microsoft Gazelle, a new web browser project by Microsoft was recently brought into the spotlight on Microsoft Research.

According to the information provided by Microsoft, this web browser will be more like an Operating System with many new features that you won’t find in Firefox, Chrome or even in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.

This is what the Research publication says:

In this paper, we introduce Gazelle, a secure web browser constructed as a multi-principal OS. Gazelle’s Browser Kernel is an operating system that exclusively manages resource protection and sharing across web site principals. This construction exposes intricate design issues that no previous work has identified, such as legacy protection of cross-origin script source, and cross-principal, cross-process display and events protection. We elaborate on these issues and provide comprehensive solutions.

Ofcourse, this will be greatly increasing the perfomace and security – in other words, can come up as the safest web browser of the world.

There is no information on its release or any other details as this project is still under works. But I’m sure, Microsoft will soon reveal more about it as time passes.
