VMware's secure browser appliance
Called the Browser Appliance, this VMware Player distribution enables Linux and Windows PCs to run Firefox 1.07 or Firefox 1.50 in a completely virtualized system.

Even if malware latches onto Firefox, its impact can never reach beyond the virtual machine. Threats like rootkits, spyware, adware, and viruses are simply cut off.
