    Sorry if this comes across as an idiot question, but if you run a web browser (or any other program that accesses the internet) from an virtual appliance, like FF in Ubuntu on a VMWare machine, does this help protect your system from some of the crap that browsers are exposed to daily?
  2. Obviously. Any bad thing coming on the computer through the browser would only infect the virtual machine, no the physical one.
