PostSubject: More privacy tools in Internet Explorer 8   Sun Sep 07, 2008 8:45 pm



Microsoft Corp. today spelled out new privacy tools in Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) that some have dubbed “porn mode” Very Happy in a nod to the most-obvious use of a browser privacy mode. A privacy advocate applauded the move, calling it a “great step forward,” while rival browser builder Mozilla Corp. said it is working to add similar features to a future Firefox. Slated to appear in IE8 Beta 2, which Microsoft’s former chairman, Bill Gates, promised will release this month, the three new tools share the “InPrivate” name, which Microsoft filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office several weeks ago.

The most intriguing tool, and the one that has prompted the “porn mode” label, was dubbed “InPrivate Browsing” by Microsoft. When enabled, IE8 will not save browsing and searching history, cookies, form data and passwords; it also will automatically clear the browser cache at the end of the session. Other new tools will include “InPrivate Blocking” and “InPrivate Subscription,” which notifies users of third-party content that can track browsing history and subscribe to lists of sites to block, respectively. Microsoft will also tweak its existing “Delete Browsing History” by adding an option to preserve bookmarked sites’ cookies even when all others are erased
