Et Tu, Mozilla? Firefox 3 To Get Privacy Mode

Mozilla logo“Mozilla will respond to Google’s Chrome and Microsoft’s IE8 with its own private-browsing, or ‘porn’ mode in Firefox, according to notes posted on its Web site, and is on track to deliver one in 3.1, the version that will likely go beta next month.”

Specifically, the mode would:

  • Discard all cookies acquired during the private session.
  • Not record sites visited to the browser’s history.
  • Not autofill passwords, and not prompt the user to save passwords.
  • Remove all downloads done during the session from the browser’s download manager.
