What is Firejail?
Firejail is a SUID security sandbox program that reduces the risk of security breaches by restricting the running environment of untrusted applications using Linux namespaces and seccomp-bpf. It allows a process and all its descendants to have their own private view of the globally shared kernel resources, such as the network stack, process table, mount table.
Firejail can sandbox any type of processes: servers, graphical applications, and even user login sessions. Written in C with virtually no dependencies, it should work on any Linux computer with a 3.x kernel version.

Said about Firejail as an alternative
Easy to use, and has a very good, but really ugly GUI.

Using Firejail on my Linux Mint system, I like the added security of running the Firefox browser in the fully private sand-boxed mode. The world is a better place with security enhancements like Firejail.
