Very interesting: COWL New web privacy system could revolutionise the safety of surfing ,

Scientists from UCL, Stanford Engineering, Google, Chalmers and Mozilla Research have built a new system that protects Internet users’ privacy whilst increasing the flexibility for web developers to build web applications that combine data from different web sites, dramatically improving the safety of surfing the web.
The system, ‘Confinement with Origin Web Labels,’ or COWL, works with Mozilla’s Firefox and the open-source version of Google’s Chrome web browsers and prevents malicious code in a web site from leaking sensitive information to unauthorised parties, whilst allowing code in a web site to display content drawn from multiple web sites – an essential function for modern, feature-rich web applications.
