If you have your running FreeBSD 10 and feeling a little adventurous (i.e.
using brand new features in 10 and ports that are not even yet committed to
the port tree officially) then you might want to create a VM (virtual
machine) on which to run the browser on and then use xhost on the host
machine and you use the DISPLAY variable on the instance to make sure any
weird things that it might do are done to a toss away VM.... unless your a
devote of -virtualization@ you're likely better off using a front-end such
as petitecloud or vmrun.sh (the second is for experts though).   For more
details see the proposed Handbook revisions on virtualization at
http://www.petitecloud.org/handbook.jsp... an other approach but a little
complex to set up and manage is run it as a jail
