Downloaded it some time ago, but I just noticed this.

When you go "incognito" and open a new tab, this shows up:

[QUOTE=Google Chrome]You've gone incognito. Pages you view in this window won't appear in your browser history or search history, and they won't leave other traces, like cookies, on your computer after you close all open incognito windows. Any files you download or bookmarks you create will be preserved, however.

Going incognito doesn't affect the behavior of other people, servers, or software. Be wary of:
- Websites that collect or share information about you
- Internet service providers or employers that track the pages you visit
- Malicious software that tracks your keystrokes in exchange for free smileys
- Surveillance by secret agents
[B] - People standing behind you[/B]

So, the important lesson for everyone: Watch out for people standing behind you when you use Chrome. They can be a huge privacy threat. XD

    That is funny.

    Everything except the last two are generally what appear for Private browsing for Firefox.

    I hate Google Chrome anyway. It always freezes for me and is really slow. I prefer Firefox.

    I thought the Secret Agents would be more of a problem.
