Firefox has finally realized the importance of Private Browsing after Chrome’s release which had Incognito Window feature from Day 1.
Private browsing allows you to turn off Firefox’s recording of history and cookie information as you browse the web. This feature will be included for the first time in Firefox 3.1 Beta 2.
So what exactly is Private Browsing? Ehsan Akhgari has the answer to it.
Private Browsing aims to help you make sure that your web browsing activities don’t leave any trace on your own computer. It is very important to note that Private Browsing is not a tool to keep you anonymous from websites or your ISP, or for example protect you from all kinds of spyware applications which use sophisticated techniques to intercept your online traffic. Private Browsing is only about making sure that Firefox doesn’t store any data which can be used to trace your online activities, no more, no less.
