Well, that's an idea, but quite a lot of sites are designed by know-nothing
several of those sites are critical to me professionally right now.
What I'm wondering is: does my idea of putting a minimal distro with Firefox
in a chroot accomplish the goal of preventing an attacker from viewing or
changing stuff in my home directories? Or does the X connection compromise
what I'm doing? I don't understand enough about how X works at the low level
to answer that for myself.
