This paper will demonstrate that a secure, user friendly platform can be implemented using on Browser Operating System Architecture. This platform protects host machine from various attack like phishing attack, drive by download attack, cross site scripting attack. The BOS architecture treats Web applications as first class objects that users explicitly install and manage, giving them explicit knowledge about and control over downloaded content and code. The BOS runs the client-side component of each Web application (e.g., on-line banking, Web mail) in its own virtual machine, provides strong isolation between Web services and the user's local resources.
