Hi!
I can explain.. I'm scared of opening instagram, gmail, fb, and others of these personal data-grabbers in the same browser. How can I do?
I would use probably Brave.
I see too that if you use the same container on "firefoxies", it's not a new container, so what I have to do? Create a thousand of them!? :|

Hi there! Firefox's container feature is indeed useful for isolating your browsing sessions and maintaining privacy. Using different containers for each site can help prevent cross-site tracking. It might seem overwhelming at first but it's a worthwhile privacy measure. As for Brave, it's a solid choice for privacy, but lacks container feature. You can use extensions like "SessionBox" or "Cookie AutoDelete" for similar functionality.

Ok, in Brave it can be a solution create different user profile? There's the problem you've to set brave from zero.
Hasn't Brave got "work areas" like edge or vivaldi? And those of vivaldi, are like separating accounts? So, for example, I can open two different gmail, one in area, and one in another?

Then do not? I use a separate browser for each service. I even block the rest of the internet except that service alone,

You can use the same browser using a portable version. Optionally you can also use an app for each, not webapp, that is just a browser's tab.

Chromium based browser have a similar feature like a container, but it is called an isolation. It works automatically, so you do not have to do anything once enabled.

Apps in MS Store are like apps on the phone, they are separated and limited by permissions.
