Web browsers today have evolved into incredible free software tools for Internet management. Apple’s Safari Web Browser now available for Windows is yet another choice for the web savvy. One built in feature that caught my attention is the Private Browsing feature. This allows you to hide your surfing tracks during any given session. What is really nice is the fact it’s integrated in right from the install. There are no plug ins to download, install, and configure.
According to Apple’s website this feature is for usage on public networks. No information cached during the session. Also, they advise that when in private browsing mode and want to check your bank statement it is secure using 128-bit encryption. So this means I can go to Starbucks and check my bank statements!?!? Uh…. yeah I will pass on trying that out thanks.
