Secure Browsing

2007-10-20

I came across a link today, with no context provided as to where it might link to. The real URL was hidden with tinyurl.com's help. Fearing that I might screw up my computer, but really wanting to know where the link goes, I took some precautions.

My final solution was...

Use Firefox on Linux on a different partition than my main distro (running Xubuntu), with my Arch and Windows partitions unmounted, and using Epiphany to check my email at the same time just in case the site's a cookie stealer.

Score: Priceless.
