Google has done it again, who says you can't launch a new product via a commic book? As first reported by Philipp Lenssen Google, recently sent out comic books by Scott McCloud announcing their latest offering. Not so incognito perhaps but, very cool!
In addition to Google Chrome's tools for webmasters, Google introduces "incognito mode" for users. While in "Incognito mode" Chrome "will not store basic browsing history information such as URLs, cached page text, or IP addresses of pages linked from the websites you visit."
- Not including encoding information could prevent CSS parsing.
- User agent string: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/525.13 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/0.X.Y.Z Safari/525.13
- Google Chrome will percent-encode query parameters within a URL.
While Google Chrome is a great new product, I feel like privacy advocates may not like Google Chrome recording "snapshots of most pages you visit (except for secure pages with “https” web addresses, such as some bank pages)". Even in incognito mode snapshots "...could still be stored elsewhere on your computer...".
