There are currently four giants in the IT Industry which are competing with each other in one or an other way. One starts to work on something and the other markets something else but much more attractive for the consumers. Sometimes I see all of them going on different directions to attract as many users as they can. For instance, Apple started to attract consumers with their Music gadget iPod and then came into the competition with a bigger and better version of the operating system to compete Microsoft, and Microsoft already holding the biggest market of operating system with Windows now jumps in with Microsoft Zune for music lovers.

Basically what this private browsing feature?
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. Your browser clears away all the cache for those websites. In the end, result is – Save Private Browsing.

At first we thought its for those people who browse Internet at public places to make their browsing safe for their web-based emails and other personal things. But later when you seen in deapth its not.
