MetaMask mentioned in the blog:
“For example, you may want to use Account 1 as your ‘public facing’ account associated with your ENS, while using Account 2 for your DeFi degen activities that you want to keep private. Now you can as they won’t be linked to each other.”

The blog post also mentions the recent improvements, including load times, browser navigation, and account connectivity.
