Signing into Websites While Operating as Root
Sometimes when I am using Kali, and operating as root, I would like to be able to sign in to a website(for instance email) for various reasons. However, I have it in my head, that this is an unsafe thing to do while I am root user, and so avoid doing so. This can be inconvenient, as it means logging out and back in as normal user to do what I need to do. I must have read somewhere that it's unsafe to sign in online as root(to gmail/facebook/null-byte or anything... even through tor or something..). Is this correct? I guess I can imagine a few reasons why it wouldn't be safe, hence my reluctance to do so, but I would like to hear some educated opinions all the same. Thanks for reading..
