    I agree with you on the extensions part. That is why I still use Firefox about 20% of the time. I do miss some extensions such as Better GReader, Web Developer, Delicious buttons, AdBlock Plus etc. But that’s just a matter of time, isn’t it?

    You know what would be better than a ramdisk solution – a portable USB-based browser 🙂 http://portableapps.com/

    Did you take Google Chrome out for spin? I find it lighter than Firefox (or IE) and I love the way it uses screen space.

    I am pretty sure Opera can be easily set up too.
    Also, it have had the kiosk mode for many years.

    I had a couple thoughts, if you use PortableApps and want it secure, you just have to either get a password protected one, or encrypt the folder containing firefox. Also it may be possible to use the thumb drive with the RAM disk approach and maybe even combine it with encryption.

    Also you could use a Bio-Protection system, if you really want security. ;}

    I don’t know what setting the “browser.cache.xxx.xxx” to false did, but it seems somewhat self-explanatory. If that is the case, then why do we even need to turn off all of the options in the privacy menu?

    How to open two firefox windows of different profiles at the same time? In my case, once I open firefox with the default profile, later on no matter what profile I specify firefox just insists working as in default profile.

    My bad, should have specified “-no-remote”.

    From google’s own chrome faqs…
    “In incognito mode …. It will also not store snapshots of pages that you visit or keep a record of your downloads. (This information could still be stored elsewhere on your computer, though.)”.
