Is it wise.....

Is it wise to use virtualization every time you use a webbrowser?
Why?

Safer because any attack will be sandboxed (virtualized): a download, a script, etc.
To be safer is to be wiser.
But, you know, security and performance, security and browsing ability, one compromises the other.
You should choose. You should to find your personal balance.

Its hard to reply when we do not know much about your operating environment such as operating system and system type that's why I have my environment in my signature.

Please go to PROFILE then Modify Profile then Forum Profile Information then update your Signature: with information like my signature as this helps the helpers offer pertinent advice.

Well, it depends what you're doing on the web, somehow.
Also which other security layers you have and which browser is involved, etc...
There is no easy answer to your question, except the one Tech already gave you before. ;)
It's just safer...
