(Since we had yesterday off for Labor Day, two posts today!)
One new concept in Chrome is the idea of an incognito session, where the history and cookies are not preserved. This could be useful if, for example, you’re at a friend’s house or an Internet café, or if you don’t want your spouse to see that you’ve been shopping for a surprise birthday present. Or other things.
To start a new incognito session in Chrome, just press Ctrl+Shift+N. A new window appears, with slightly different coloring and a “secretive browser person” icon at the top.
(To close the incognito session, just press Alt+F4 as you normally would to close a program. All tabs in your new window close at once.)
