Internet Explorer 7 will feature CURI, a new URL handling architecture.
When designing our security strategy for IE7, malicious URIs were near the top of the list because secure handling of URIs throughout IE is critical to the security of the system. Hence, a major architectural investment was made in CURI for IE7.
Unlike most of the new features in IE7, most end users will never notice CURI working “under the hood” on their behalf. For the technical readers in the audience, however, the details behind CURI may be of some interest.
