ServiceOS is a multi-user browser, announced by Microsoft in early 2009. The new browser will apply the principles of resource sharing, typical for multi-user operating systems, which, according to Microsoft, will increase its reliability while maintaining acceptable performance. The browser is developed with a clean sheet, without using the developments of Internet Explorer. Template: None AI However, the experimental version of the browser Gazelle runs on the core of IE Trident.At the heart of ServiceOS is its own kernel, different from what is used in Internet Explorer. The main features of the new Microsoft browser are a new approach to browser architecture, as well as to the requirements of stability. Microsoft will now completely leave Java because of the end of its own Java VM support, focusing on .NET and perhaps Lua.
ServiceOS does not allow plugins to directly access the computer. The Chromium browser and its derivatives break the execution of a specific task into separate processes, isolating different parts of the page from each other in memory; Developers of Microsoft offer to break down into separate processes elements within the same page.
ServiceOS is a research project and includes a vision of which access and resource management techniques can be applied to web applications. The created prototype ServiceOS is able to manage resources such as CPU, memory, network bandwidth, and so on.
The date of appearance of the public beta version of this product, as well as the date of its appearance on the market in the corporation is not specified. Nevertheless, Microsoft introduced ServiceOS in August 2009, at the Security Symposium event.
