Microsoft web browser that covers its tracks could hit Google’s advertising
Microsoft’s latest internet browser includes a piece of software that allows internet users to hide the audit trail of websites they have visited.
The InPrivate feature on Internet Explorer 8, nicknamed “porn mode”, allows users to conceal the sites they have viewed at the click of a button.
Once the setting is chosen, others using the same computer will not be able to see which sites have been accessed. Other browsers have similar functions, but this one is far more prominent. Although casual users cannot see the previous user’s search history, authorities such as the police will be able to access it if necessary.
Interesting on two fronts. Blocking Google, and what they are calling the “mode”.
