Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
The project consists of a global feedback database and a little piece of client software that seamlessly integrates into the user's operating system. The client software replaces the Microsoft Authenticode security warning window and additionaly adds several shell extensions. When Windows or Internet Explorer warns the user before executing an unknown application, it displays all the feedback contributed by other computer users worldwide, such as ratings, reviews or badware reports, beside the publisher's digital certificate information. The same information is also available under the 'Properties' window for code files.

Actually this was the first step in the project. Later versions will add features such as dynamic system requirements checks, software rankings, etc."
