HP to Launch Virtual Browser With Mozilla

Hewlett-Packard is getting into the browser wars with the
launch of a virtual browser in conjunction with The Mozilla Foundation, HP executives told InternetNews.com..

But there’s a catch: You only get the browser as one of a bevy of new security and green tech features offered with HP’s Monday launch of its new Compaq dc7900 desktop series.

“We think it’s going to be revolutionary,” said Kirk Godkin, manager of
HP’s business desktops for North America. “We’ve partnered with Firefox and
Symantec to deliver the HP-Firefox virtual browser,” he added.

What HP (NYSE: HPQ) sees in this is a browser that’s a little different in that it
run in its virtualized runtime environment, he added. “Everything you’re
clicking on is being put into a sandbox. All downloads, cookies —
everything you’ve done is can be cleaned out” in a virtual browser
environment, he said. “You still save all your favorites. It’s easy to
implement and easy to understand.”

Godkin said HP expects to build the feature across its entire desktop
lineups.
