Thumbs up Secpimp your browser: unveil is coming to Firefox

Joshua Stein (jcs@) has been working on a patchset for Firefox:
I've been working on enhancing the security of OpenBSD's Firefox port over the past couple weeks and would like some wider testing
A new Firefox patchset is available if you're following along at home. This one sacrifices possible upstream compatibility to gain more security by moving unveil and pledge settings to files in /etc/firefox, making them immutable at runtime.
https://jcs.org/patches/firefox-port-unveil9.diff (< latest version of the patch at time of writing)

Some not-so-random quotes:
