The concept of Microsoft dropping Internet Explorer like a bad habit is next to thrilling.
that Microsoft is giving Internet Explorer the boot. IE8 will be the last traditional version of the Microsoft web browser. The site claims that Microsoft’s next browser will be much like the “Gazelle”, a research project conducted by Microsoft.
JCXP does not cite a source, so it is unknown whether or not this concept can be believed.
Gazelle apparently utilizes a sandboxed multi-process approach much like Chrome by Google. It not only runs each tab or website in a separate process but additionally gives individual parts of each site its own process. Plug-ins are run in individuals, sand-boxed processes so that if they expire they have no affect on other processes.
The individuals who developed Gazelle think that Chrome just isn’t enough.
The Gazelle is in a class of its own. It relies on a “browser kernel”, 5000 lines of C# code which exposes the underlying system to webpages utilizing a system of calls. No content from the web will intermingle with the actual operating system; rather communication is delivered via the sandboxed browser kernel. The browser kernel handles all sharing and protection of resources.
Presently Gazelle has been designed with some IE functions, and it is not ready for mass production. However, the majority of websites are rendered correctly.
