Color Me Secure:
PC World reports that Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, and Konqueror have agreed on new browser standards to make surfing more secure, these include color coding the address bar much like Firefox does now when visiting a secured site. As well as restrictions on popup windows.
Developers in Toronto also agreed to improve browser security by no longer allowing pop-up windows to be displayed without an address bar or a status bar. This will make it harder to mistake them for other types of Windows messages, Staikos said. "You'll always know that a window belongs to a Web browser," he said.
