with all the sites out there that are recording you information it does little good to worry about your browser.

i went to a few french web site one time (not porn sites)and used google translate to read the sites and within a week i started to get 419. Fake Lottery, bank, fake paypal and other nigerian spam in my email in french. i Dont read french.
so the nigerians can even track you web surfing.

if you want a good web browser use Ixquick/Start page at least they claim not to record any information.

Ixquick was awarded the first European Privacy Seal (EuroPriSe) for its privacy practices on July 14, 2008. This European Union-sponsored initiative guarantees compliance with EU laws and regulations on data security and privacy, through a series of design and technical audits.

I don't look at anything illegal so I could care less what the government sees as long as it's hidden from a certain person. : )

I don't think there is an easy way to remove internet explorer - I think (could be wrong here) internet explorer handles anything to do with HTML and a few other things... So it's not actually a stand alone application, it's actually integral to windows.

I did notice windows 7 with the iexplorer only comes in 64 bit and there is no 32 bit. And when you surf on the net using pretty much any browser you get a flashing effect from advertising boxes do to adobe flash being 32 bit and not compatible with 64 bit. I had to download Opera browser just to get rid of the hypnotic effect of flasing screens. But firefox ace explorer all use iexploer to work opera has stand alone software and using nothing from iexplorer.

Porn mode?

Reeeeaaally....Interesting.....

Well, I guess it's good for teenagers using a shared computer.
Or from your wife, and children.

This has to be one of the funniest things I've ever heard come from Microsoft. Porn mode? Really? They really need to either really get their act together, or drop web browser development entirely.

So I'm going to go ahead and assume that none of you have noticed that Firefox now has a "Private Browsing" option in "Tools" right?

Yes, I use Firefox. I don't have anything to hide from anyone I live with, though. If I do something that catches "anyone's" attention, I'll find some way around that attention. If there is no way, I'll take the blame.

Whether or not this is another maniacal NWO or Illuminati plot remains to be seen. But for now, there's IE, which is crap. There is Firefox, which is headed straight down the same lane. Fast. Oh and the Google one. Crap.

Then there are others that the average PC user could not install let alone use efficiently. If you have something to hide, get good at hiding and evading. Otherwise, it's a lose-lose-lose. So pick your crap pile and enjoy it.

I think this button will actually log what you do, and flag you instead of keeping what you do online private!


So you think everything you do on the net isn't logged automatically anyway?

It seems like something for people who are less computer-literate than others.

I used to look at naughty stuff when I was younger, I didn't know how to delete my history back then.. If I saw a big "PRIVATE MODE" then I would have clicked that.

It just seems more user friendly then the whole delete cookies, delete blah blah...

Conspiracy?
No

I just assume that everything I browse is recorded somewhere. But I also assume that this information is too vast to be of any use to anyone in relation to my identity unless I am under investigation for something specifically.

I'll be interested when Firefox has the same (I know what you can do with it, and at the moment you can't simply make a selection and keep all info unrecorded!)
IMO, it should have been a standard feature from the get go. You don't automatically record your telephone conversations, none of us write lists of every shop we've been into when we go out. Why was it natural to have a running record of websites visited on any computer?

I predominantly use Firefox, and I have done for years. But I am finding myself using IE more often because Firefox seems to dislike Facebook, has started crashing occasionally, and it sometimes has problems accessing some media.
And I'm told by colleagues and friends that this is now common.
I've only been experiencing problems over the last year or so. But it has made me consider finding another alternative.

Either way, I do nothing illegal on-line, and no one else uses my PC, so I have nothing really to worry about. I would simply support a complete privacy option because it's only right that this should be a default.

I love it when people criticize Microsoft for adding features to its own browser which should help the experience for its clients. I love it when people criticize Microsoft for copying, despite Firefox having many copied features. Look at Opera, it created, RAM Cache, tabbed browsing, zoom, sessions, user css, Nicknames, Clear private data, Mouse gestures, Integrated search, Pop-up Blocking, Small Screen Rendering (2002), Fast Forward, Spatial Navigation, Voice navigation, User Javascript, Browser Javascript, BitTorrent support, Widgets, integrated IRC, integrated mail client & Speeddial. Does this mean Firefox is a bad browser for having copied Opera's features? No, of course not. Features that help the client are fantastic.

As far as Firefox (And it's Firefox, not FireFox) being more secure, baloney. Enjoy what browser you like, but stop filling peoples minds with horse manure. All the Microsoft haters out there using the premise that IE is not secure and Microsoft spies on you.. Firefox was made specifically for collecting browser habits so the people that bought into that parade are being looked at more than Microsoft ever looked at anyone. IE does not bounce around and ping through proxy systems or ports to record browser habits periodically and actually respects the users privacy. You really think that Mozilla made Firefox free, just for you to protect you from the big bad MS? LMAO. Nothings free.


Micorosoft keeps a log of every site you visited and im not talking about browsing history

membrane.com...

No, Microsoft computers do not "phone home" and send user data. That article was from 2001 and actually has nothing to do with Microsoft stealing any data. And if you are under the premise that whatever browser you are using is better than what you are suggesting, then you are severely mistaken. What do you think the purpose of Opera Turbo is?

Also, you would think that if FF was safer, then they wouldn't use the Windows networking system.

People still use Internet Explorer? lmfao You'd think the I.E. 8 update that caused tons of computers to go more or less non-functional would have removed the last few die hards.

Windows 7 64 bit ships with both 32 and 64 bit versions of Internet Explorer. Flash has issues with any 64 bit browser not limited to IE 8, furthermore Flash works fine in the 32 version of IE 8.

Yea all the open source OS'es use M$ monolithic structure
Yea all the open source OS'es moved from multi to single user because it was working so well for M$

All the open source operating systems have huge issues in workability for the end user.

I can find two iexplorers on my computer iexplorer 64 bit and iexplorer 86 bit. Both cause falshing of adobe flash player while browsing with iexplorer due to both versions not being compatible with 32 bit adobe flash player. try finding the file location of your iexplorer and right click go to properties.

No, you are incorrect. Flash fully supports Internet Explorer 8 and should have absolutely no problems with it. Although I use Opera, IE 8 has no problems displaying any flash content.

www.adobe.com...

IE 8 on Windows 7 is fully supported. If you have any issues with Flash on IE 8 then I think you should contact Adobe support, or continue using Firefox.
