    What do you use private browsing for (besides the obvious)?

    Just something I wondered while I was doing the dishes...

    We have this wonderful private browsing / incognito mode these days. But I don't know what do people actually use it for, besides the obvious (it's not nicknamed porn mode for nothing). So tell me, good people of JUB.

    I personally use it for google searches I wouldn't want showing up in my history. Funnily enough, I don't use it for porn. That's all out in the open.

    I never use it. If somebody's fascinated by what sort of things I look for online, they're welcome to check and find out.

    I don't even understand what that would be used for. Who can see what I'm looking at?

    When I first started looking up porn I used to use it, but now I could care less.

    Same here. I doubt I would want to use it, but would someone care to post an idiot's guide nonetheless?

    I have my serious doubts how "private" that really is. I'm convinced Google, Facebook, and Twitter know everything about everyone, just short of a conspiracy theory. I have no doubt they know more about you then the FBI.

    Not being a nerd or geek or whatever,
    I always stand a chance to learn something.

    Doesn't the privacy thing just keep it off the surface?
    Isn't the footprint or whatever still always there on the
    drive or other thingy, just slightly under the surface and
    anyone can pull back the covers baring you and all your
    predilections? Or has that changed too?

    I only barely remember having beaten into my 1950's
    brain that the drive never really forgets or forgives
    anything...just shelves it in deeper recesses that may
    require an Computer acolyte or up to a Guru to find?

    Parishioners may not know how but the 'holy mother'
    and inner circle can and do. Or have I been dieting
    on Orwell and sniffing Hubbards et al for to long?

    "Private", wasn't that some outmoded 20th century concept?

    Re: What do you use private browsing for (besides the obvious)?

    I hated when Firefox updated ages ago and every time I typed in the url bar it brought up my history. I hated it not because I was worried about people seeing what I did online, but because it was just so fucking annoying. I turned that crap off as soon as I figured out how. As for private browsing, I don't think I'm in private mode
    I may be bad, but I'm perfectly good at it.

    Husbands use private browsing (stealth mode) so their wives wouldn't find out (via browsing history) they've been looking at gay porn.

    Wives use private browsing so their lesbian partners wouldn't find out they've been looking at straight porn.

    I always put it on when I'm using someone else's computer just in case.

    I live alone so I don't bother on my own computer.

    I only use it for online banking, so I don't have to clear my cache every time. I don't actually use it for porn! No one else uses my laptop anyway, so i'm not worried about anyone finding it.

    My computer has a fingerprint lock. I don't really need to browse in secret too.

    I use it for absolutely everything. If I were to drop dead right now, the last thing I would ever want my loved ones to see is my browser history.

    I figure if it's good enough for Homeland Security to review, then John Q. Public should have his chance if he can figure out my password.

    Re: What do you use private browsing for (besides the obvious)?

    For the people who don't know what private browsing is:

    Private browsing...
    ...is a feature in newer browsers where your cookies, browser history, filled out forms and other traces of what you've done online are deleted when you close the window. Its nickname is porn mode because, well, you know.

    In Internet Explorer it's called InPrivate and you access it by pressing crtl+shift+p
    In Firefox it's called Private Browsing and you access it by pressing crtl+shift+p
    In Chrome it's called Incognito Mode and it's accessed by pressing crtl+shift+n

    Re: What do you use private browsing for (besides the obvious)?

    Surprised nobody else mentioned it, but I use it at work. It's a small company and the best they'd know how to do is check browser history to see what we're doing.
    So for non-work-related websites I use private browsing. Just saves me from having to clear everything at the end of the day.
