Incognito Mode on Browsers – Keyboard Shortcuts

In the previous post, Clear Cache – Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari – the efforts taken to clear cache and other data stored on your computer when you surf the internet. Staying Private or browsing on Incognito mode saves that time.

What is Incognito Browsing?

Incognito mode is the way of browsing clean. You do not leave any tracks of your browsing data like pages you visited, cache, cookies, etc. It helps you especially if you use a public computer.

How to stay private or incognito mode?

Below listed are the windows keyboard shortcuts, which in most cases work on other OSs also, for Private or Incognito Mode Browsing on different browsers

New Incognito Window on Google Chrome – Press the key combination CTRL + SHIFT + N

New Private Window on Mozilla Firefox – Press the key combination CTRL + SHIFT + P

New InPrivate Browsing Window on Internet Explorer – Press the key combination CTRL + SHIFT + P

In Safari, for privacy, you can choose Safari > Private Browsing

When you surf the web using a shared or public Mac, Private Browsing can protect your personal information. You can check your email at the library, or shop for birthday presents on the family Mac. When you turn on Private Browsing, Safari doesn’t remember the pages you visit, your search history, or your AutoFill information.

In Safari 5.1, a “PRIVATE” button appears on the right side of the smart Address (URL) field (item 3) when you are in Private Browsing. Click it to see a “Turn off private browsing” confirmation sheet. source :
