Make Your Safari Web Browsing Private

With all of the problems of identity theft, advertisers tracking your every move through cookies and problems with privacy these days, finding a way to keep your web browsing more private has become important for everybody.

The new Safari beta has an option called Private Browsing that will keep all pages from being added to the history, items from saving in the downloads window and the autofill for searches.

Turning this mode on is simple, just open Safari and click on Edit and select Private Browsing…


You will get a confirmation screen with a general overview of the Private Browsing feature.  Click OK.
