Google Chrome’s ‘Incognito Mode’ Is Worthless

In December 2008, the internet welcomed Google’s Incognito Mode, a privacy option for Chrome, with open arms. The feature offered protection against overbearing browser-history snoops at a time when many of us considered getting caught visiting NSFW sites (OK, let’s be frank: porn) on a computer to be the biggest threat posed by the web. This wasn’t exactly the case.

In fact, hiding your unmentionable browsing habits was hardly the reason a crack team of developers at Google made Incognito Mode. Knowing that Incognito Mode is still widely misunderstood, and has somewhat unfairly come to connote shady behavior, we talked to one of the people who built it, Google’s Vice President of Chrome, Darin Fisher. Fisher provided a firsthand take on how people should be using it, and what people shouldn’t be expecting it to do for them.

Fucking Tech

    "Humans have great technology that could improve their lives. However, humans always fuck up it's implementation through bad management, bad design, rushed releases, no testing, no resources, corruption and just not giving a fuck about anything. In turn, humans remain frustrated, in a life unimproved. Stupid humans."
