SandboxSafari is built with Xcode 2.5 against the 10.4 SDK,
along with the Mozilla Add-on SDK
and Platypus 4.4. Unzip the source package and type make to build
the core application. The installer (fixer/)
is built with Platypus; the
setting file is included. The TenFourFox integration add-on (sse/)
is built with
the Mozilla Add-on SDK; just cfx xpi in that directory.
The source code also includes a tool openurl that allows you to
open a URL with an arbitrary app (for testing purposes). This allows you
to push URLs to SandboxSafari from the command line or other utilities
instead of just using the regular OS X open utility. It is built
by the Makefile for the core executable.
It might be nice to see if there is some way to facultatively leverage the
Leopard sandbox, if the executable detects it is running on that system, as
a second layer of protection.
chrooting the app ended in abject failure, even when dyld
was forced to perform eager binding, probably because of its dylib
dependencies. It would still be very nice to support this and would solve
a lot of problems.
Try to pare down the context menu even more.
