My solution to that is: https://github.com/xkcd386at/scripts/blob/master/usff -- run firefox under different Unix userids. This way I only have to watch for issues that cause privilege escalation (i.e., an exploit that gives root access). These are pretty rare in general, but even more so if the attackers access is only via a browser

not "on-topic" for vim per se, but https://github.com/xkcd386at/scripts/blob/master/fzfm and https://github.com/xkcd386at/scripts/blob/master/laziercli are examples of how far I have taken fzf (not fzf within vim, but fzf at the command line)

Vifm is one of the most underrated FM's out there. The one I see most often mentioned (let's call it 141414) is so useless for almost anything out of the ordinary I started to think they're all gas lighting the rest of us when they praise it!

If you are going to install a load of plugins anyways, why not just use an IDE that has vim mode?

You really shouldn’t use a google doc for your config files😅 just store them in a git repository. I use https://github.com/twpayne/chezmoi, it can be a bit confusing at first but when you understand the tool it is really powerful. Especially if you have different machines that need slightly different configurations

> That this is even suggested as an installation command means that they might as well strike "securely" from the tagline. For someone interested in security the foul odor that this line emits is enough to make me stop reading.
I don't know. I always think this line smacks of paternalism. For instance, plenty of projects suggest for installation something like:
git clone https://github.com/twpayne/chezmoi/; cd chezmoi; make; sudo make install
Managing your Dotfiles with Dotter (Tutorial)
9 projects | dev.to | 6 Jul 2022
I'm glad you asked! There are plenty of dotfiles managers out there, like chezmoi, Dotbot, or yadm (you can see a list here and a comparison table (from chezmoi, thus biased) here. But for this tutorial (and my dotfiles), I chose dotter.
A Cross-Platform tool to deploy dot files
6 projects | reddit.com/r/linux | 25 Jun 2022
I didn't like using symlinks since it'd clog up my Telescope fuzzy find searches in neovim, so I switched to chezmoi. It uses a git repo to store all the files, then you use a command to copy them to the machine. Then if you change the files on your machine, you can see the changes through another command, and decide to re-deploy the git version, update the git version to reflect your system, or just leave it as it is.
What are some alternatives?

Ansible - Ansible is a radically simple IT automation platform that makes your applications and systems easier to deploy and maintain. Automate everything from code deployment to network configuration to cloud management, in a language that approaches plain English, using SSH, with no agents to install on remote systems. https://docs.ansible.com.
dotdrop - Save your dotfiles once, deploy them everywhere
