Are there other practical ways of securing an OpenBSD web browser?

Sure it's harder to set up, but believe me, after setting up the maintenance

I started firefox on a remote xhost and it somehow

That's a feature, not a bug.=)
I think the same, if running a command after installing it will make your
system free enough, what is the need of a fork? I think that if you publish a
web page with that information the OpenBSD community would not take that as an

It may be a little far-fetched, but I'm sure it would be possible
to have one package-manager for all distributions if there would just
be the motivation to distribute statically linked binaries and not fuck

Just for the record, I do not think that OpenBSD/i386 behavior with
virtual disks running on KVM is a bug. Virtio was designed specially
for virtual machines and all modern Linux distros and other modern
operating systems support it, therefore the only good reason for not

I've found the performance with cache=none to be unacceptable as well.
I'm using cache=writeback. Of course you'll get much better

It might be the case for OpenBSD/i386,
A few months ago I tried to install OpenBSD 5.5 in a KVM virtual
machine running Linux in an amd64 computer. First tried to install the
i386 version since my Linux virtual machines are i686 and was
painfully slow, so much that I almost decided to not use OpenBSD. Then
