    Do we need to "sandbox" a web browser in case we visit a very nasty malware website which runs nasty scripts etc?

    OR is MacOS already "sandboxed"? If anything from a web browser etc wants to change or add anything to our Mac, a pop up window would appear asking for our password, right? So we don't have to ever worry about browsing and don't need addons such as "noscript" etc?

    Safari and Chrome do render web page and run plug-ins in sandbox, but they are not sandbox app in Apple's term. The browser apps still have full right to access any system resources that you can access.
