About this Add-on
Each sandbox has a name and a color, therefore it will be always easy to identify which tab is sandboxed.
Also, these sandboxes are permanent! So, when you open one of them the second time, maybe after a restart, that sandbox will still have the same cookies, same storage, etc - as you left the previous time.
You can also switch between sandboxes using the context menu for the tab.
Here an example: with priv8 you can read your gmail webmail in a tab, and another gmail webmail in another tab at the same time. Still, you can be logged in on Facebook in a tab and not in the others. This is nice!
Moreover, if you are a web developer and you want to test a website using multiple accounts, priv8 gives you the opportunity to have each account in a sandboxed tab. Much easier then have multiple profiles or login and logout manung>ally every time!
Is it stable? I don't know :) It works but more test must be done. Help needed!
Known issues: window.open() doesn't work from a sandbox and e10s is not supported yet.
