- Rated 5 out of 5by Aleksandr, 3 years agoA good solution to improve online privacy with regards to cookies. I do not know so much whether this helps with other forms of tracking such as fingerprinting.
This extension basically opens a cookie-free tab for each website I visit apart from websites I set up to open in a dedicated container (using Multi-Account Containers). Integration with Multi-Account Containers is seamless.
- Rated 5 out of 5by CryptiiKat$, 3 years agoI didn't know I needed temp containers until I started using them, but now I'm kicking myself for how long it took me to hop on the bandwagon. It's not a complicated idea, and this add-on in particular makes the experience streamlined from the initial installation. Your grandma is probably more tech savvy than I am, which means that if I managed to figure this out, it's a testament to how intuitive and breezy Temporary Containers is by nature. As an added bonus, I'm much more productive when I use temp containers. When I'm researching a topic or working on a project, it's typical for me to be pulling data from dozens of different sources, which gets cluttered and overwhelming pretty fast. Using temp containers is a quick way to keep all of my pages, notes, and links organized without sacrificing the privacy of my digital footprint.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Alex, 3 years agoI looked through my cookies recently and was surprised to see almost none in there, then I realized that was because this extension is helping me to throw out so much irrelevant data. Thanks!
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 16009735, 3 years agoGreat add-on! If it's recommended by PrivacyTools.io, it's good on my book. If you haven't checked them out, they have other solid privacy recommendations.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 12807353, 3 years agoProbably one of the easiest and most secure ways to control privacy. It's like having multiple different browsers in private-mode without the ability for each to talk to each other. Each tab can be made to be isolated and self-contained. This can replace the need for "self-destructing" cookie addons, because once a tab is closed, all cookies/storage is also removed.
- Rated 5 out of 5by 098askjhgw, 3 years agoIt works very well!! In Automatic Mode, it seems that using the address bar to enter a different domain always creates another temporary container. I see the logic here -most typed urls from the address bar go to a different domain. All new blank tab address bar urls to go a different domain.
Two questions. Is there a way to match a typed address bar url domain with any existing temp container of the same domain and use that existing temp container being that their domains match?? I have Global Isolation Navigation and clicks set to Different from Tab Domain & Subdomain
Is automatic temporary containers per domain one of the intended use cases?? I used this with a clean ff install. It works great, but using the address bar leaves me with really way to many containers. This extension is great!
Developer responseposted 3 years agoGlad you like it! What triggers the new TCs when using the address bar is the Global Isolation. Automatic Mode creates new TCs primarily when opening new tabs.
If your goal is to have containers for specific domains, you might want to look into extensions managing permanent containers, like Multi-Account Containers (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/multi-account-containers/). TC is meant to always create fresh temporary containers and not re-using existing containers. If you really think that should be a thing feel free to open an issue over on GitHub (https://github.com/stoically/temporary-containers/issues).
