I just start the browser from the command line.  I don't know if this
works with all browsers, but firefox and seamonkey will open the page
in an already running browser, if one is running, instead of starting
another instance, unless you add -no-remote to the command line.  I have
a script called browse that takes a URL as an argument and allows me
to select a browser from a list to open it in.  The list includes
firefox/new and firefox/existing, and runs firefox with or without
the -no-remote option depending on which one I choose.  Same for
seamonkey/new and seamonkey/existing.

My address uses a whitelist.  If you aren't in my whitelist, you can
only send me e-mail if you send to an appropriately tagged address (it
includes +sometag between the username and @).  Finger my untagged e-mail
address for a tag guaranteed good for 24 hours if you're unsure.  If I've
sent you mail recently, you're temporarily whitelisted automatically.
