Just out of curiosity do you run browsers in a container, virtual machine or use Linux Namespaces?

I use containers on NixOS and Namespaces on Debian because some websites scan ports on localhost and some apps, which listen to local host, don't ask user/password by default when connection is from lo to lo interface.

@dimcha I'm thinking about running my remaining Google login activity (mainly Google Voice) in a virtual machine. I haven't done that yet, though.

@retroedgetech I have a separate container for Google web apps. So I never login to Google in my main browser. (I'm also running Skype for Web is in another container). I was thinking about VMs but VMs consume too much resources.

@dimcha Don't use any of the options, but I really oughta learn how one of these days.
