After inventing new and interesting ways to get round browser privacy controls (the most famous being Google circumventing Safari cookie controls from a few years back), Google are hitting a brick wall when it comes to slurping from non-Chrome browsers, so they therefore invent this privacy sandbox which will be anything but that.

Hopefully none of the other browser makers are stupid enough to take them at their word, but Microsoft probably will be and Google will have a try at putting it in Chromium.
