Since last few weeks you all must have noticied the new race in the web broswers. Private Browsing feature is recently introduced into the market of web browsers as a new technique to browse the Internet. First Apple Safari introduced it, then Google Chrome, then the copying spectator Microsoft IE 8 Beta and last of all Mozilla Firefox 3.1

Answer to this very simple question is, it simple does not store any tracks of the websites that you browsing during that session. It will not keep a track of your History, the Cookies, the Temporarily saved Internet files, etc. on your computer’s harddrive. As soon as you close the browser window.
