It's free and you can install absolutely everything including operating systems (of course) which can't be done in any of the sandbox programs like spoon.net and sandboxie.
And Sandboxie has a free but limited version, you have to pay to get all the benefits and avoid nag screens.
I don't get it why so many of these specialized apps exists, to install and run Virtual Box isn't that hard!
OK, so... I see yet another company doing virtual productivity application hosting... only with an idiotic angle of hosting a lot of free applications.... with the worst brand name I've ever seen on such a company.

As mentioned in the article, it is useful as a web dev to be able to test a site on many different platforms. Sure you can do it locally through a virtual machine as well, but this sounds a little easier and presumably you can test the various browsers on different OSes as well.
