Private mode, is it private?

6 posts in this topic

Hi, back here again after a year in the wilderness using other browsers. Question: When I click on "private window," another window does open, but it does not indicate in any way that it is a private, i.e. incognito, window. It looks like the regular window. All other browsers have some little thing indicating it's incognito. What am I missing? Thanks in advance.

you are missing nothing there is nothing more; private mode sounds sympathetic but is useless in any browser.

Not entirely true. I noticed later that it is not remembered in History.

Hi MichaelD,

The private window has the different avatar with the normal window.

Thanks, Bugsir, but it does not appear on my PC screen. The private window looks identical to the normal screen. Well, almost. I just noticed that the Maxnote avatar at the top right does not appear on the private window. Other than that, I see no difference at all.

Whoops! I just pinned a Maxthon icon to the taskbar, and I notice that incognito windows do show that avatar in the taskbar but nowhere else. That works for me.
