Microsoft is working on a project called 'BrowserShield', a browser add-on that will detect malicious code in web pages and remove it on-the-fly.  Sounds interesting but conceivably dangerous to me.  What if we disagree on what constitutes dangerous?  Anyway, it will be interesting to see what comes out of this group.

The BrowserShield project—the brainchild of Helen Wang, a project leader in Microsoft Research's Systems & Networking Research Group, and an outgrowth of the company's Shield initiative to block network worms—could one day even become Microsoft's answer to zero-day browser exploits such as the WMF (Windows Metafile) attack that spread like wildfire in December 2005.
