ground-up support for "session containers"

There are occasions when it would be useful to log in to one site and have a set of tabs open as "User X" then another set of tabs open as "User Y", and yet a third set of tabs open as "User Z". There are hacky ways to accomplish this now (use 3 different browsers, use incognito windows, etc..). ALl these hacks have their drawbacks. If Opera supported this functionality nativley from the ground up it would go a long way toward making this scenario less of a chore. Think of it like Docker for a browser. This would allow me as a tester to log in to my site as an "Admin" in one container and as 3 or 4 different users inside of 3 or 4 separate containers. I could then open several tabs to different pages on the web site within each container. It would be nice if the UI allowed for some visual differentiation between the different session containers (maybe different colors or a unique label specified by the user). It would also be nice if there were shortcut keys that quickly allowed you to switch between the session containers (like Alt+Tab in windows).
