On the other topic, sandboxing is IMHO hyped more than it's actually useful. It's one reasonable idea of how to possibly prevent exploits from going worse, but 1) if you (in theory) don't have exploits in the first place, it's useless, and 2) there's lot of security/privacy-relevant flaws where it has no effect at all, esp. in the area surrounding XSS. Also see http://hackademix.net/2012/02/16/sandboxes-are-overrated-... and stuff linked from there.
