Microsoft Research Builds 'BrowserShield' (article)

eWeek reports: "Researchers at the Redmond, Wash., company have completed work on a prototype framework called BrowserShield that promises to allow IE to intercept and remove, on the fly, malicious code hidden on Web pages, instead showing users safe equivalents of those pages."

IMHO: I have to say that this is an innovative idea that will probably get copied by the other browser's in their on going war to add new features and gain more market share. I have heard it said that 'imitation is the greatest complement', but I know a great deal of people who will argue that point. Now I have to wait for my chance to try this out, and see how well it works.
