MICROSOFT'S IE8 might get a 'private browsing' mode that will enable users to surf the net and not leave sticky... ahem... fingerprints.

Microsoft has gone to the trademark office and filed in two application forms. The first IC 009. US 021 023 026 036 038 is for a program for accessing and using the Internet and the world wide web which will delete search history after it leaves a website.

The second is C 009. US 021 023 026 036 038 which allows computer programs to disable the history and file caching features of a web browser; and computer software for notifying a user of a web browser when others are tracking web use and for controlling the information others can access about such use.

The big idea is already in the Mozzarella Foundations Firefox 3 browser so we are not sure how Microsoft could get a trademark on it.

We're struggling to find a use for this beyond looking at pron without getting rumbled.

Microsoft has confirmed the rumor floating around last week that IE 8 would get its own "porn mode"—or "private browsing mode" if you insist on being mature about it. Amusingly enough, they have dubbed their service InPrivate, which sounds even filthier if you ask me. Beta 2 is now available here http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/beta/

Happy browsing Smile

Microsoft has outlined the new privacy tools available in its forthcoming browser Internet Explorer 8 (IE8).

Earlier this week the company’s program manager Andy Zeigler confirmed rumours from last week that Microsoft would include a privacy browsing feature affectionately known as "porn mode".

He said four new controls with be available in IE8 for people keen to take their web browsing “off the record”.

Features expected to appear in IE8 beta 2, due later this month, include the ability for web surfers to manage their history, cookies and other info stored by the browser. They will also be able to control how their browsing history is shared by websites.

Microsoft’s “InPrivate Browsing” tool has caused quite a kerfuffle among bloggers over the past few weeks. Dubbed “porn mode”, the feature, when enabled, will switch off cookies, browsing and search history, and it won't save form data and passwords. In addition, it will automatically clear the cache at the end of the browser session.

“InPrivate Subscription” will let surfers subscribe to lists of websites to block or allow, while “InPrivate Blocking” will inform users about sites that might check their browsing history and give them the power to block it.

IE8 could give Opera and Firefox a run for their feature money


Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE) is the king of the hill when it comes to web browsers. That is despite the fact that many computer users feel IE is a much less usable browser than its main competitors like Opera and Firefox.

For instance, Microsoft was way behind its competitors adding features as basic as tabbed browsing, which only showed up in IE7. It appears that Microsoft is intent on making a browser that competes with the newer browsers on a much more complete basis feature wise with Internet Explorer 8.

IE8 will offer a wealth of new features starting with Activities. Activities allow you to open links to external web services within the context of a page you are looking at. If you are looking at the webpage for a store or restaurant, you could get driving directions with Live Maps or send the information to another web application.

Webslices is another new feature that allows users to subscribe and bring content on the links bar as they surf the web. IE8 also comes a long way on standards compliance and offers three different rendering modes -- Quirks mode, Strict mode, and IE8 standards mode. Quirks mode supports IE5 and legacy browsers, strict mode supports IE7 and is accessed through an emulate IE7 button.

IE8 is compliant with cascading style sheets (CSS) 2.1 and offers HTML improvements intended to fix cross browser inconsistencies. IE8's get/set/remove attributes are now compatible with other browsers and default attributes for HTML are supported. IE8 also includes integrated developer tools. This will allow web developers to debug HTML, CSS, and JavaScript in a visual development environment included with the web browser.

CNET News reports that IE8 Beta 1 has some significant new security features. One of the features is a cross-site scripting filter. Microsoft says this is one of the first scripting filters on a mainstream browser. This feature is meant to protect a user from a malicious webpage that tries to execute a script on a user's browser without them knowing. When a page requests a cross-site script to be executed, IE8 changes the content on the web page being viewed with a notice that the script wants to run. When IE8 recognizes a malicious script, it keeps the script from executing.

Another significant new feature is called InPrivate. The feature allows users to browse the internet without having IE8 cache the content being viewed. When the function is activated, you can keep the rest of your browsing history intact. IE8 also adds ActiveX components security, which eliminates drive-by downloads. IE8 has Microsoft malware protection built-in -- a feature that Opera and other competitors feature.

One of the best new features of IE7 was the addition of tabbed browsing. IE8 takes tabbed browsing to the next level for Microsoft. IE8 will also users to reopen the last few tabs that were closed. This is a great feature if you have ever accidentally closed a tab while working. Tabs opened from the same page are also color coded to make keeping groups of tabs easier. IE8 also offers the ability for the browser to suggest new websites similar to the websites you have previously viewed. The option is turned off by default.

IE8 competitor Firefox set a record for the most downloads in 24 hours when its latest version launched recently.

According to Tomshardware IE8 is a bit of bloatware..
Quote :
Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 8, released in beta form last week, might make surfing for Internet pron a little safer, but the folks at exo.performance.network report that the new browser has developed a voracious appetite for memory and CPU cycles.

There’s been widespread reporting on IE8’s InPrivate (aka “porn mode”) option that enables you to hide your browsing habits, but the new software’s resource footprint looks to be significantly larger than that of IE7, and it’s nearly twice the size of Firefox 3.01. In a test scenario consisting of 10 popular websites (including CNET, the New York Times, and Fox News) loaded into separate tabs, IE8 consumed nearly 380MB of memory. IE7 required 250MB of RAM to render the same workload, while Firefox needed just 159MB. In fact, IE8 utilizes more memory than a base install of Windows XP itself!

And IE8 isn’t just a memory pig; Microsoft’s swollen code spawned a CPU thread count that brings to mind the bed sheets at a five-star hotel: Where Firefox spawned 29 concurrent threads in the test scenario and IE7 issued 65, IE8 choked the CPU (a 2.66GHz Core2 Duo) with no fewer than 171 threads spread over six concurrent instances of iexplore.exe.

Exo’s analysis concludes that Microsoft is designing for the future, essentially counting on four and eight-core systems with 4GB of RAM to become the norm, while simultaneously creating demand for the 64-bit flavors of Windows Vista and the upcoming Windows 7.

We can think of plenty of reasons to buy rigs with more memory and beefier CPUs; running a bloated web browser isn’t one of them.

It looks good too, to be fair, though i expect its a resource hog.

Opera is your friend.

and with regards to private browsing, you can be sure that the distribution comes with nice complementary tools in any managed internet environment where the sec. team or the webadmins can still see what you are up to as easy as pie.
