anyone familiar with this function (which used to be called "sandbox")?
what is it good for?
is it advisable to run chrome as restricted app?
I actually tried this out, and it didn't seem to interfere with chrome's functioning, but I don't know how much it actually helps.
I was surprised to see that I could still download to a folder that was not on the list of folders with write access.

You'll have to ask Datpol about the limitations of Restricted Applications on 64-bit systems. I asked a couple of times, but Datpol wouldn't give any infos.

maybe I just didn't set it up right, the first time.
now I restricted the google program folder, not just chrome.exe alone, and SpS is properly denying access when I try to download to off-limit areas.
