Mozilla has begun rolling out a new security feature called 'Site Isolation' for its Firefox browser to protect users against a new class of side-channel attacks from malicious sites.

Once activated the browser will load each website you browse using any one browser tab using a separate 'operating system process' to block untrusted code embedded by hackers in a website that you are unwittingly browsing in an adjacent tab.
