// BrowsingInstance class
// A browsing instance corresponds to the notion of a "unit of related browsing
// contexts" in the HTML 5 spec.  Intuitively, it represents a collection of
// tabs and frames that can have script connections to each other.  In that
// sense, it reflects the user interface, and not the contents of the tabs and
// frames.
// We further subdivide a BrowsingInstance into SiteInstances, which represent
// the documents within each BrowsingInstance that are from the same site and
// thus can have script access to each other.  Different SiteInstances can
// safely run in different processes, because their documents cannot access
// each other's contents (due to the same origin policy).
// It is important to only have one SiteInstance per site within a given
// BrowsingInstance.  This is because any two documents from the same site
// might be able to script each other if they are in the same BrowsingInstance.
// Thus, they must be rendered in the same process.
// If the process-per-site model is in use, then we ensure that there is only
// one SiteInstance per site for the entire profile, not just for each
// BrowsingInstance.  This reduces the number of renderer processes we create.
// (This is currently only true if --process-per-site is specified at the
// command line.)
// A BrowsingInstance is live as long as any SiteInstance has a reference to
// it.  A SiteInstance is live as long as any NavigationEntry or RenderViewHost
// have references to it.  Because both classes are RefCounted, they do not
// need to be manually deleted.
// Currently, the BrowsingInstance class is not visible outside of the
// SiteInstance class.  To get a new SiteInstance that is part of the same
// BrowsingInstance, use SiteInstance::GetRelatedSiteInstance.  Because of
// this, BrowsingInstances and SiteInstances are tested together in
// site_instance_unittest.cc.
