Please react to this eval of the secure browser found online:
"In a surprising move, Dell has launched its own web browser. Even though the browser market is already fiercely competitive, its obvious that a lot of people still believe that there is still room for niche browsers. The new browser, which is called Dell KACE Secure Browser, is based on Firefox.
Secure-BrowserThe standout feature of Secure Browser is sandboxing. It utilizes KACE’s Virtual Kontainer to provide a secure browsing environment. In other words, the browser runs in its own separate compartment which is completely insulated from the rest of the system. As a result, even if you pick up malwares while browsing, your system won’t get infected. As far as the virtual environment is concerned, you can clean it up by simply using the reset functionality.
The Secure Browser is probably the bulkiest browser in the market. The installer itself takes up more than seventy megabytes! Even more annoyingly, the Secure Browser can’t be installed if you don’t uninstall Firefox. It’s hard to imagine too many people adopting this browser. However, that probably doesn’t matter to Dell. In all likelihood, we will soon see Secure Browser being preinstalled on Dell systems powered by Windows."

The size is a result of the installation containing not just Firefox, but Adobe Reader, Flash and our virtualization layer software.

There is no requirement to first uninstall Firefox before installing. The fact that it is a virtual installation means that the two instances should live side by side without issue. Having said that, we are seeing reports that in some cases the virtual instance (Secure Browser) does not launch or launches with high CPU utilization and this is something we are working to reproduce and correct now. The more details that can be shared here in the AppDeploy forums the faster we should be able to turn around an updated release.
