Mozilla Firefox is personally the best browser I would recommend for anyone who desires speed, reliability and perfect rendering of web pages. Apart from these generally known features that makes Firefox stand out, there is a very good feature on it just for your online security that I just can’t find on other browsers. Private Browsing is quite an innovative feature designed for people who use shared computers at work, cyber cafes or schools.
When enabled, Firefox never keeps a record of your browsing history for that session. No history or cookies are stored even when you forget to log out of those sites and you can be rest assured no one will be meddling with your browsing history behind your back.
The private browsing feature is quite great as you surf the internet without leaving a single trace of your online activity on that computer even if you suddenly close your browser or there is a power outage before you could manaully log out and clear your browsing history.
No data is left as your browsing and download history, form and search history, cookies, cache, active logins and site preferences are all forgtten! I think this private browsing feature started with Firefox 3.1 (I’m just guessing though). So if you’re still using Firefox 2, I suggest you download the latest
To enable private browsing, click on Tools and select Start Private Browsing or simply press Ctrl + Shift + P on the keyboard. It’s as easy as that and your online privacy is guaranteed.
For your security, always turn this private browsing feature on each time you use a shared computer.
