Yo, Linux users! Hi!
On plan 9, there's a system-wide HTTP client. As such, if I sign in to a site in one web browser, I'm signed in on *all* of them, because the browsers aren't responsible for managing cookies. I can also see all cookies cross-browser in $home/lib/webcookies.
I'm not asking how to do that under Linux.
I'm just amazed at how *obvious* this feels in retrospect.
@pixelherodev Can you *avoid* that behaviour? With something like "incognito" mode? I log into (for example) multiple AWS accounts all the time. If my browser windows all shared the same cookies it would not be possible.
Yes, plan9 supports multiple users.
That said, as I mentioned previously, a better solution to have multiple sessions is to run `webcookies -f $home/lib/cookies2` or some such. You can actually have arbitrary sessions, but each one will be shared across browsers.
If you prefer incognito, you can also sandbox a browser and use a ramfs for its cookies, which will be gone the instant the window is closed.
