Microsoft internet explorer version 8 will have a new feature the private browsing mode also known as the porn mode. This feature provides special privacy when browsing porn sites.
With the porn mode enabled users can surf porn sites without leaving any traces behind. The online history, personal information, cache all gets erased. The porn mode also alerts user when they are being tracked.
According to Microsoft internet explorer 8 features the most important component, privacy. The aim is to make internet explorer 8 a trustworthy browser.
Privacy browsing is not a new feature and already seen in the Apple safari browser since 2005. Firefox 3 browser also was supposed to feature the privacy component but was not implemented because of complex designing issues.
The final version of the internet explorer 8 is expected to be release by the end of 2008.
Google have jumped the gun on Microsoft who announced a porn mode facility for the next release of their
Internet Explorer browser. Google have just released their new browser, Chrome, featuring similar functionality.
For times when you want to browse in stealth mode, for example, to plan surprises like gifts or birthdays, Google Chrome offers the incognito browsing mode. Webpages that you open and files downloaded while you are incognito won't be logged in
your browsing and download histories; all new cookies are deleted after you close the incognito window. You can browse normally and in incognito mode at the same time by using separate windows.
Browsing in incognito mode only keeps Google Chrome from storing information about the websites you've visited. The websites you visit may still have records of your visit. Any files saved to your computer will still remain on your computer.
