A while ago, I was talking to Christian Villum about working habits and using LastPass. I separate my work browser and non-work browser. This could probably help more people who want to keep their browsing history, sync, and credentials separate.
I use two different browser profiles of Firefox when I work. Each one is themed differently to help me visually differentiate them. They also run two different versions of Firefox (Aurora and Nightly), so the logos are different. I use Awesome, so they live in different workspaces as well. I don’t do this as a config, just something I manage manually. It’s been long enough that it’s muscle memory already. An alternative is to use different browsers. My non-work browser is my default browser (and default profile), so that’s what opens up when I click a link.
Create a shell script with the following contents. Running this will create a new instance of the Firefox with the profile called Work.
firefox -new-instance -P Work
Does anyone else separate work and personal browsing history?
