IE8 to Include Porn Browsing Mode

Share

The software giant Microsoft looks forward to add a private browsing mode to its upcoming Internet Explorer 8 browser. The new feature is dubbed porn browsing mode and it will be included in the beta 2 version of IE8, which will be released this month.

Obviously the biggest advantage of the new feature is that users will be able to surf through porn websites without leaving a trace. The mode will erase the history, cache and personal data that users enter and/or share. In addition, the mode will alert users if they are being tracked.

It seems that Microsoft wants to focus on user privacy, which is currently a sour topic with lots of IE users. In one of the recent blog posts, the company outlined that privacy is virtually the main part of the "trustworthy browsing" element of IE8.

However, IE8 is not the only browser to offer private browsing. The first one to introduce this feature was Apple's Safari browser. In addition Mozilla also had plans to add private browsing in its latest web browser Firefox 3, but because of "complex designing" problems the feature was not included.

The first beta version of IE8 was launched in March. There has not no official data regarding the official release of the browser's final version, but experts consider that IE8 will in released later this year.
