    Is it made for anything other than porn?

    (I use incognito, it sounds cooler than "Private Browsing", And you get a cool little dectective guy on the top corner of the screen)

    EDIT - Incognito Spoiler

    If you're shopping for a gift for your spouse and don't want them finding out ahead of time?

    There's always the "delete history from last 1H".

    I don't like the private browsing, as I always have a lot of tabs in many opened windows. When switching back and forth, it needs to reload every tabs at once, and it's painfully slow on my net connection, the windows don't always open in the sme order, etc.
    I prefer creating a new user profile.
    firefox.exe -ProfileManager[/p]There, you can create a new profile.
    Don't set it as default, so nobody will now you have a different firefox account.

    To run it :
    firefox.exe -P profilename_here[/p]

    if Firefox default profile is already running, it will open a new window as the currently logged user.
    To force another Firefox process, use this script in a .bat file:

    PS : Firefox 4 should remove the profileManager for few weeks, they are working on a new better system.

    If you try to sign up for a service and get whatever error, and they block your IP, then using Private Browsing will help.

    Private browsing doesn't hide your IP.

    I love you right now.

    On-topic: why would you need private browsing for porn? If you're with any rational human, they'll understand that masturbation is just something that you do, and it has no ill-bearing on the relationship.

    Unless you're like 12 and live with your parents.

    I use private browsing so when people are over and I go to show them something and type in the address bar, it doesn't flash up a list of fetishes on *booru-style sites that happen to start with those first few letters...

    I'm fortunate enough to have two browsers, only one of which I use "generally," the other for "personal" uses...

    Yeah, I would use Incognito if I was looking at Rydian's porn too.
