Privacy, Browsing

Most modern browsers feature private browsing, where your IP is not passed to the site you land on. As the attacks on the Internet user continue, private browsing may help you fend off some of the trash;

For Firefox, the tweak is in about:config.
Change the {browser.privatebrowsing.autostart;false} value to true.

This will permanently open Firefox in private browsing mode.

For google chrome: You add a start switch, “–incognito” to the shortcut line to enable it.

Both seem to work fine once you set up private browsing. Caution, it’s not absolute.

Alternatively, you can enable private browsing from the menu after each start.
