I do it when watching porn so it doesn't show up in my history.


This is what private mode was designed for and all is right in the world.

I like not needing to clear my browsing history every time I look for something I'd rather not remain in the history.

So I guess, someone can see all the things I browse with password of mine :\

The incognito mode doesn't really do much of anything besides wiping out some local data

That's why people should switch to opera.

I usually use incognito unless I'm doing work and need my information like username/password saved.

I like to never remember my pervy sites, so using incognito allows me to strive for better and newer sites so I never a crutch to rely on what I liked.

If I wanted to conceal myself I would just use multiple VPN's

Some legal anime sites ban incognito mode. Do not use it when watching anime.

Opera doesn't have a lot of users.

https://www.netmarketshare.com/browser-market-share.aspx?qprid=0&qpcustomd=0

Acording to the video report, Opera uses Chromium (Chrome) as its foundation. So... Why not use Chromium or Chrome?

I'm a Firefox user, myself, but that first link, showing how much Chromium/Chrome is used, makes me want to give it a look.

Firefox for customizability, chrome for performance. Opera if you want to be edgy, you should try Opera out yourself, it's fairly nice.

I've modified my settings to clear my history immediately after I exit each session. Never really keeps any in the first place.
