Mozilla’s Firefox browser will get a new feature that makes it possible to open separate tabs for work, personal, internet banking and online shopping. The feature is called ‘Containers’ and makes it possible to open tabs in different contexts.

That’s certainly interesting. I might have to try it out later.

Wonderful! Four times the stored cookies, four seperate caches to fill, four bookmark files to lose and four times more opportunities for malware to roost.

Probably that more or less. I just use one and open tab for each sites…and it works fine for me. Having all those containers is asking for trouble as well and malware will look for those browsers.

Hmm, what if the containers are four virtual domains not interconnected?
I have not had the chance to look into it, but while I share your concern, this ‘could’ be implemented in a highly secure way and not only for gags :wink:

“Mozilla hopes that this way users don’t use different browsers or have to switch between accounts on the same domain”

Mozilla admits wanna go spyware on top of being already a ram hog!
