Nice URL, guys! Hey, at least you have no shame in actually saying what most people do with "incognito" mode! The other review websites I read don't dare go there.

I'm typing this using InPrivate, IE8, just for the lulz.

And I wish this feature would've existed 2 years ago when my gf found out her bday present due to the f*ing autocomplete feature (which i will never enable again)

Haha.

Nice.

But honestly, I find it both amusing and depressing that this feature is being added to all the internet browsers... Sure, you COULD use it for gift shopping, but c'mon we all know what it is REALLY for.

did you know that Microsoft InPrivate Browsing is a joke, the browser creates files in the file system as it normally does, then they delete them when the InPrivate Browsing session is done. So anyone can go back with an undelete tool and get back the deleted files. Also, if the system does a shadow copy while you are InPrivate Browsing those files are copies to the shadow copy and remain, even after your InPrivate Browsing session is done. If Muckersoft wanted to do it right they would have done the whole thing in memory and not written anything to the file system or the swap file, but they wanted a checkbox next to the feature and didn't worry about the implementation...

Firefox has been a huge POS for me recently. It just stops loading webpages right in the middle of them, and this is on TWO different Vista x64 installations. It just sits theres pretending its loading th rest of the page and NEVER does. I gotta hit reload page like 4 times or it does nothing. I take that exact same link while Firefox is frozen and put it in my IE7 or w/e Vista comes with and BOOM the page loads... GG

Ahem, "Pornmode", yes. But also could be used for surfing while at work (though the network could still record where you went), for hiding game sites from parents, for going to 4chan, or really anything you don't want to have to worry about. Even just going to GMail and afraid you might forget to log off.

That said, all I want out of FF is to get two things:
1) Increase the stability. I am sick of Vista / GMail / FF crashing. I am sick of Flash crashing. I am sick of Adobe in a browser crashing. I am sick of random crashes on opening new tabs.
2) Let one tab crash without taking down all my tabs in multiple windows.

Another reason why I switched back to IE8!

I know that, I also know that since I browse like there's no tomorrow (no swine flu joke intended) the files get overwritten and thus useless in a few seconds, I also know that no one can install a data recovery utility in my machine (or run it from a flash drive) without my permission and finally, let's face it, if IE8 InPrivate stored all those contents in memory you'd be whining about how a resource hog IE8 is, all in all InPrivate does a good job and IE8 is aeons from IE7 and is finally starting to cacth up to firefox, which is nice, that brings competition (and thus innovation and the whatnots)

I agree, I'd feel very ashamed of myself if anyone caught me going to that crummy site called 4chan which I avoid like the plague.

I thought firefox already had these features built in. Or do they mean it doesn't initially store the content at all? I have had mine set to automatically clear the data for several months already. What's the difference?

ever used a public computer or using a friends computer and worried if any data was left behind, private mode is great for that

rocket, I think "incognito" is similar to what you do, but it's more "automatic." A person can tell their browser to avoid remembering auto-fill search boxes, passwords, cookies, etc. and have it delete all that material upon exiting the browser, but with "incognito" mode, it's all set up with a single click of a button, and the user can also opt to switch back to "remember everything" mode just as easily.

I like the way Google Chrome actually changes its window appearance when in incognito mode.

I dont know if this is just me. But when I use the what you call "f0rnmode" in chrome and IE8 the videos gets slow and sometimes I cant replay it. Hope this will not happen in FF. ^_^

I'm so tired of this nonsensical x.5 jump garbage. It's really gotten old. If you don't give a damn about following version numbers, then just pretend that every minor release is a full new version and skip straight to v4, then v5 for the next minor update.

What bothers me about Firefox's Private browsing, is when you have a Firefox window open, for example, steaming music, and you open another Firefox window and enable Private, all instances of Firefox close. IE8 and Safari don't do that. Small complaint, but annoying.

Could be adblock plus...sometimes websites hang for me cause the site is warring with adblock to load an ad.

firefox works fine for me. I had one problem where some malware installed a bad script that caused a lot of problems, just had to delete that. I submitted the script to malwarebytes hopefully they catch that stuff now.
