Firefox 'Porn Mode' Private Browsing ArrivesSo, I'm wondering what the market penetration will be for this browser. And if it will be a death blow to IE.
Pre-release versions of Firefox 3.1 Beta 2 now include Private Browsing, according to Firefox programmer Ehsan Akhgar.
"Private Browsing aims to help you make sure that your Web browsing activities don't leave any trace on your own computer," Akhgar explained in a blog post. "It is very important to note that Private Browsing is not a tool to keep you anonymous from Web sites 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."
Personally, I'm not a Firefox fan. It crashed too much and I got tired of it. IE may not be the most cutting edge, but it's the most stable. and I'm not a frills kind of guy.
