Spiderinabox is a ready to use minimal OpenBSD virtual machine loaded with Firefox with scripts and programs to use it to securely browse the internet through OSX without the hassle of installing a VM or figuring out how to do X forwarding through SSH.

This simplifies things to an extend that you just download spiderinabox, extract it, install VirtualBox and XQuartz and just run RUNME and everything starts automatically. In a minute you are presented with Firefox running encapsulated in the prepared OpenBSD VM through XQuartz.

You can browse the internet without worrying that any malware has any access to the files on the host system.

This is ideal if you want to perform tasks which you want to not break your system or otherwise you don't want any of the apps on your system to have access to what your doing.

* online banking
* accessing sites which have malware

Any case in which you don't want the browser to have any access to your actual OS.
