Nice Review of Caja

Tim Oren posted about Caja.

…this adds up to a very good chance that something that’s right now fairly obscure could turn into a major force in Web 2.0 within months, not years. Because Caja modifies the de facto definition of JavaScript, it would have an immediate impact on any scripts and sites that are doing things regarded as unsafe in the new model. If you’ve got a Web 2.0 based site, get ready for a project to review for ‘Caja-safety’. If the Caja model spreads, then the edges of the sandbox are going to get blurry. Various users and sites will be able to make choices to allow more powerful operations, and figuring out which ones are significant and allow enhanced value could be a fairly torturous product management challenge, and perhaps allow market entry chances for more powerful forms of widgets and Facebook-style ‘apps’.
