    I'll wait for the extremist parenting groups to say it should be blocked as paedophiles will be untraceable :s

    It's a good idea, I'm really looking forward to it. And we'll see how safe it is!

    AFAIK all it does is clear your cache and history after you've finished. It won't hide your ip from sites or anything, so anyone will be fully traceable.
    Doesn't safari have a feature like this already?

    They're facilitating the misdeeds of teenage boys across the globe, with this one.

    hmmm lets see the article says, that IE will be the second browser behind safari to bring this feature out, so I would lean on the side of yes

    ...Firefoxes "Miracle Bar" was a major setback in this regard...also note the absense of the old "Delete all" Button in Firefox.

    What are people doing on the internet that they would let others use their computer to check their web history, but not want them to find out about it? Cheating on your girl/boyfriend and teenages looking at porn? or is there something I am missing? o_O

    Doesn't matter, there'll still be evangalists that can't read properly.

    I didn't say I misread it, I understood that. Anyway, it's not irony, it's coincidence, irony would be me stating the opposite. (i.e. a prostitute living in a place called Virginity)

    The irony was that you criticised the literacy of evangelists while spelling it "evangalists".

    the website knows your ip adress, the isp knows who had what ip adress at what time, so there is no privacy anyway, using a proxy? just an additonal court order and they know it again.

    a browser that prevents someone from seeing what sites you have been on by clearing your cookies and browsing history? well, you can do that on your own allready.

    He criticised their (which one is it? :p ) ability to read not spell, therefore it's not ironic when he himself makes a spelling mistake. :blush:
