Except that browsers have exchanges with the outside world that carry
personalization with it, so at some level the browser needs to be tied
with an identity, and compromising that identity will always be a concern.
But that's another topic; just wanted to prove there's no easy solution,
but it's good to see MS playing catchup with Unix on this, even if it has
been 15-20 years.
