I checked it out George and it's like you have basically said in all your posts here, overkill. Still, many people go for that kind of paranoid setup, and anyway, having it in a nicely integrated package is a great idea.

I'd say the difference in security between this and Sandboxie is probably of little significance. The difference might be something like 99.5% of browsing threats are prevented by Sandboxie whereas 99.7% are prevented by Bitbox. Either way, unless you are purposefully exposing your computer via browser to the latest and greatest malware threats every day you are unlikely to see any issues. I honestly do just fine with Google Chrome's comparably pathetic sandbox and a few tweaked settings as my only security, and despite monthly on demand scans, I have yet to run into a problem for quite some time.
