Worried about your girlfriend, wife, or mom seeing all the dirty stuff you check out online? Well, fear not, perv, as Microsoft's 8th edition of Internet Explorer (IE) will include a feature that lets you surf the Web without a trace of what you checked out.

The new tool, called InPrivate Browsing, will debut later this month in the second Beta version of IE 8. When you, um, turn this feature on, IE will not save your browsing or search history, cookies, form data, or passwords, and will clear its cache when you're, um, done. While Microsoft says it's designed for people using public or shared computers, do we really need to explain why this is being dubbed "porn mode?"

Other new features include InPrivate Blocking, which tells you when content is able to track your browsing history, and InPrivate Subscription, which gives you lists of sites to block. Another change is to the "Delete Browsing History" option, which now lets you keep cookies for certain sites. Mozilla, which was supposed to have similar features in Firefox 3.0, is hoping to have it in 3.1 sometime in the next few months. Stay tuned. [From: Computerworld]

They credited us with the birth of that sort of heavy metal thing. Well, if that's the case, there should be an immediate abortion.

Don't they already have this feature? Turn off saving history and webforms in your options.

I guess a bunch of guys will be switching back to IE now eh?
Her friends are gazing on her,
And on her gaudy bier,
And weep!-oh! to dishonor
Dead beauty with a tear!
They loved her for her wealth-
And they hated her for her pride-
But she grew in feeble health,
And they love her-that she died.

Wow they're so desperate to contend with the 3rd party browsers that their main feature will be easy porn viewing.

Pretty smart, actually lol.

Ctrl + H -> Delete

thats only for the browsing history.

theyre deleting all traces, including history, cookies, passwords, search forms etc, all of which generally save automatically without you having to tell it to or not.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

No. Read the final sentence. Firefox 3.1 will have one to.

If I understand correctly, it only deletes the stuff you view under that mode. That way all your searches and other stuff from normal surfing is still there.

Yep. Pretty cool actually. It'd be better if it also automatically put you under a proxy.
