Google’s New Web Browser Let’s You Go Incognito

Web browsing has become safer with Chrome, ’s browser. You can download if for free. It’s lightweight on your computer resources but heavy duty on surfing the web. Pages load faster.

There is also an awesome feature that is the antithesis of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE) web browser — secure browsing. Whereas Microsoft tries to track your movements and uses practices that are questionable for your privacy and security, Google has built in features to help protect you. In particular, you can click on the little wrench icon in the upper right hand corner and select, “New incognito window.”

A new browser window opens and tells you:

You’ve gone incognito. Pages you view in this window won’t appear in your browser history or search history, and they won’t leave other traces, like cookies, on your computer after you close the incognito window. Any files you download or bookmarks you create will be preserved, however.

Going incognito doesn’t affect the behavior of other people, servers, or software. Be wary of:
* Websites that collect or share information about you
* Internet service providers or employers that track the pages you visit
* Malicious software that tracks your keystrokes in exchange for free smileys
* Surveillance by secret agents
* People standing behind you
