Sounds pretty good - private DNS is a nice touch

	There are emerging vendors who offer a hardened web browser
that only allows the user to access certain pre-vetted web sites.  The
one I saw demo'd today is based on the Mozilla code base.  The UI looks
like a stripped-down Firefox.  While it's running all other Windows
programs (inc. any key loggers or other malware) are more or less
suspended.  Only SSL communication is allowed.  The browser also uses a
private DNS server to avoid DNS poisoning and a signed URL list to
avoid bookmark poisoning.

	Sounds kind of like Safe Browsing?
