"driver", daemon, kernel module whatever the hell you want to call it.
You know the source for that OS was leaked. I'm not saying developers should just outright copy it. Just look at the source off record and make your own implementation of it.

The basic features of NoScript exist for IE since forever, you can define custom levels of trust for stuff like Javascript, cookies and ActiveX per zones, you can stick sties into trusted and untrusted with variety of customization for each. It's just that getting to that and configuring it is going to be hectic for joe6pack and no one has noticed it.

I wouldn't care about this myself if I didn't have to support IE for people who absolutely must use it. :\

Make "money" revoke-able so when some one looses a case in court and is required to pay money if they don't WANT to, the governing body could revoke that money as simple as pressing a button.
