Journal GameboyRMH's Journal: Making Google keep to itself with Multifox

For quite some time I've wanted to isolate my Google web services from my other usage - when you're logged into Google, they track your searches, what results you click on, what videos you watch on Youtube, and the new single privacy policy only allows more of this inter-service sharing I don't want. I was thinking that if Firefox could have a concurrent private browsing window, as Chrome can, I could sign into my Google accounts in there, thus keeping my Google cookies confined to the window with only Google services in it.

Firefox can't do that. What it can do, with the Multifox plugin, is open a new window with a separate identity. And they survive session restores too, handy! So it's like having a separate browser installed, just minus all the hassle that makes that a PITA solution.
