Speed does matter!

It has enhanced security features to protect your private data. Firefox 3.5 release has introduced “Private Browsing Mode” by which the user can browse websites by surpassing the web history being saved on his/her local machine. This feature was earlier introduced in Google Chrome as “Incognito”. This feature would be helpful to users who use a public machine to browse websites. In this mode, Firefox won’t keep track on browser history, search history or download history. The cookies and temporary internet files will be deleted automatically once the session is closed. In case, if the user wishes to save a website, then the only option would be to save it in bookmarks.
