Firefox outroars Chrome's Incognito

Despite huge record breaking promotion and download day campaign, Firefox is able to grab only the 20% market share. Whereas Internet Explorer looses it's share and now limited to only 71% from 95% according to one study. Internet Explorer is still the massively used internet browser in the world. This is the seen and experienced fact. I've been to many clients, most of them mid-aged and older and they don't know what on earth 'Firefox' is. They are just happy with the way 'Internet Explorer' is. It's already there in the system.

Few month's ago, I was fascinated to learn about Google's Chrome browser. One of the coolest feature that it has incorporated is 'Incognito Mode'. I exaggerated 'Incognito Mode' then. Obviously, I was excited. Now, following the trend, the next update(Firefox v.3.1) of Firefox is coming up with a feature something similar to 'Incognito Mode' in Chrome.

Formally, they've named it as 'Private Browsing'. But articulately, they are naming it 'PORN MODE'. They are implying that Internet is mostly used for porn. People don't want to leave any traces for whatever they do online. That's what 'PORN MODE' is all about.

Why do they needed the 'porn mode' in the browser? It's because, nobody wants to leave any traces behind. It's all about privacy. There is a big drawback with the already existing feature called "clear Private Data". When one does 'Clear Private Data', they usually end up clearing up all the needed/unneeded internet cache and records. This was such a big discomfort. 'Porn Mode' clears only the Unneeded internet cache and records. Just fire up the 'Porn Mode'(Private Browsing), it will switch off cookies, browsing and search history, won't save form data,passwords and so. When done, it'll clear the cache at the end of the browsing session. Isn't that cool?

This will save lots of time and the moments of reluctance to use other's computer to check your vital information online.

Ever since, Google's Chrome has come up with that feature, there is a hurdle among browsers developer to incorporate this feature. Following the trend, IE8 has something similar already in it's bag. They've named it as 'InPrivate Browsing' tool. When IE8 will be released, 'InPrivate Browsing' would become one of the interesting features.

But for now, I'm waiting for that Firefox update.

Thank you for reading my post.

Do you have a Blogger(blogspot) Blog and do you know Google is deleting blogger blogs??

As usual, I was checking backlink tool to find some of the friends link (who has linked backed to me before) if they still have my link backlinked to me or not. Well, some of them didn't link back to me. I checked their site and the message I got upon visiting their blogspot(blogger) blog was something like "this blog has been deleted." As I was visiting some of the other blogspot blog, I found few of them got deleted too. I thought, may be they got over blogging. Recently more and more blogspot(blogger) blogs are unavailable or being deleted. Now, these things forced me to think why those blogs are being deleted. I usually check official google blog for any kind of stuff they are upto. Their blog was shut down too(it's some days before), they are online now though. But, it's quite eerie because this very blog of mine is hosted on blogger's server too. I don't know what happened to their official blog but it's confirmed news they are deleting blogs. M
