Hi all. I keep reading about how browsers are going to be virtualized so browsing can be isolated in its own 'container', reducing the risk of viruses spreading to the host OS.


Is this available to the home user?

.....specifically, but not critical, Google Chrome?

If isolated then how does my host OS virus scanner monitor what's going on?


Note, I use VirtualBox on a regular basis so I've had my hand in this stuff for a while, just testing out Linux distro's on a Windows host.
