    Pinned tabs security

    Hello - since pinned tabs are always open, does they pose any additional security threat? Thank you.

    such should not be any security issue; like quick launch, they might eat up a little bit of resource memory though

    Beware of pinning any site that has visual ads.

    Similar schemes have been used since 2010 at least, they're not likely to stop any time soon ...
