Several users have requested the ability to create disposable/one-shot containers. As the request is tailored for more advanced users, Bram suggested adding the capability into DevTools.

Here are a couple more devtools / container ideas we discussed at the devtools meeting this week: * Storage inspector integration - manage cookie jars through the devtools storage UI as a way to avoid needing to either edit cookies directly or manage multiple browser processes ** Use case 1: Test security on a page by reloading it after 'deleting' all of the cookies (i.e. switching to a new container), but being able to restore them easily ** Use case 2: Manage multiple logins for development (one tab as admin user, one tab as normal user) * Show the color of the active container somewhere in the toolbox
