For what reasons do you actually use the Incognito (AKA private browsing) browser feature?

Other than the obvious one ;)

    When a site like the NYTimes uses cookies to track how many free articles I've browser, private browsing resets those counters to zero every time I restart the browser.

      Yep, I definitely use it to bypass silly limits, and general "tracking". I also use incognito when I do research on gifts or other things I wouldn't want people to know about.

    Not much really. My browsing habits arent that racy.

    To be honest, only when I'm in the mood to view gore, or when I'm searching Erowid/Bluelight for information. I don't really hide my internet habits, but some things I just don't want snooping friends and relatives to stumble upon.

    You mean the option that's like your browser saying: "please pretend you don't know who I am"?

    If you want to browse privately the incognito feature is not going to cut it.

    I kinda gave up on that. My lady doesn't mind me browsing porn anyway.
