Hi all

I took a break from breaking things and looked at a way to prevent
exploitation:-
<http://www.thespanner.co.uk/2010/02/04/the-safety-net/>

Plus sides:-
-Prevent phishing
-Prevent XSS
-Prevent CSRF
-Prevent viruses
-Helps user education of security threats

Downsides:-
-The browsing experience is limited when clicking links from certain context
-Advertisers won't like it
-It will break certain websites

What do you think?
