Does use of Sandbox (Avast Pro) adversely affect programs. Should it be used all the time with Browsers? Is browsing slowed?

Basically it really cant hurt to run your browser in a sandbox.  that way, if you download anything malicious it will not affect your computer.  I dont see much slowdown when using a browser in Sandboxie.  However your best bet is to give it a try for yourself.
