How to browse the Internet in a private mode on your browser

browsing, private browsing, opera, chrome, goolge, mozilla firefox, internet explorer, safariI often travel on work with my colleagues and share my netbook with them. However, I like to ensure that I don't leave behind traces of my browsing activity on my netbook. At the same time, I don't like to burden my netbook with hefty software. I was looking for an application to protect my privacy on the net, which is also easy on my netbook, when I came across this simple system tweak. Check out how to browse the web anonymously by activating the privacy mode of your browser.

Whether you are using Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple's Safari, or Opera, all the major browsers now support private browsing in their latest versions. Browsers not only automatically block sites that provide malicious downloads and malware, but also update their list of malicious websites regularly. Modern browsers also allow you to surf the web privately by automatically deleting your history, download, and cookies list. You just need to do a simple tweak in your browser to enable private browsing.

Private browsing is quite easy with Internet Explorer (IE), but if you are using the older versions of IE, you'll have to upgrade to IE 8 for private browsing. Click tools from the menu bar and select ‘InPrivate Browsing’. This will open a new window with highlighted InPrivate blue tag next to your URL bar. Alternatively, you can also activate private browsing by pressing Ctrl+Shift+P. IE allows you to filter all malicious websites with ‘Smartscreen’ filter and updates its database regularly. IE also allows InPrivate Filtering to block website and trackers from tracking you. You can select the services via InPrivate filtering settings.

Firefox has also added private browsing feature in its latest versions since Firefox 3. Click tools, select ‘Start Private Browsing’ or simple press Ctrl+Shift+P. Your current session will automatically become a private browsing session leaving no history on your browser.

Similarly in Chrome, you can do private browsing by opening an incognito browser window. Click on the wrench icon from the right side of Chrome browser and select the 'New incognito window' from the customization options. You can also press Ctrl+Shift+N to open a fresh incognito window for private browsing.

Earlier versions of Safari lacked the private browsing feature, but the newer versiona have this feature. Go to settings and click private browsing to start a private browsing session on Safari. In case of Opera, you can’t enjoy a private browsing session, but it does offer private searching and identity blocking features.

Private mode helps you escape the browser history as cookies, downloads and history will be automatically deleted when you leave a private session. But privacy mode allows you to surf secretly not securely, in contrast to a popular myth. It allows no trace of history in your system but websites you visited can trace your IP normally. Private browsing is as secure as normal browsing in contrast to the common belief that masked browsing is more secure. However, private browsing is effective when you don’t want anybody to trace your browsing history at all.
