Yeah that's what I figured. On Ubuntu the Chromium sandbox works fine, and it makes sense that Windows and Linux have different implementations. Previously I just assumed that the sandbox runs in the browser and is platform-independent.

Thanks, I'll attempt that when I have the patience to figure out how to replace the kernel. I tend to stick to what works so I'm fine with what I'm using now, especially since I tend to screw up due to my carelessness and lack of expertise. Still, I know very little about kernel management and modifications, and it's good to know this is an option.

It's a Catch 22 situation with Chrome as you have the extra security with the more aggressive Sandboxing yet Chrome is considered the least private of browsers with all the built in tracking and snooping.

Maybe. It depends on the definition of security and how much you trust Google with the data they gather from you. In my case I'm not concerned so much with tracking or gathering of usage data, but getting hacked would be a pretty big no-no. Anyways I'm not using Chrome for the time being (except for Netflix).
