How To Use Firefox’s Multi-Account Containers (BEST Feature in Firefox!)

Firefox is my favorite web browser by far and there’s many reasons for that. Firefox has been bringing the Privacy & Security Fire recently and I previously made a video about the 7 Reasons why Firefox is the web browser that I choose. At the top of that list is the most powerful and useful feature in Firefox, for me at least, and this feature puts Firefox in a realm all by itself. That feature is Multi-Account Containers (or Container Tabs) and it changes the workflow of web browsing so significantly that it may be enough on its own to convince some to switch to Firefox.

Multi-Account Containers is an extension that lets you create Containerized sessions inside of Firefox with separated sets of cookies which allows you to use the web with multiple identities or accounts at the same time. This video explains what they are, how to create them and how to use them as well as some advanced tips.
