IE8 to have 'Porn Mode'?Mikey 9 comments
As Microsoft gears up to launch Internet Explorer 8 beta 2 (I'm hoping it's a significant change from the beta 1 I have been testing), rumours have surfaced the new browser will incorporate what is essentially a feature to cover your pornographic surfing habits, or Porn Mode as istartedsomething.com puts it.
A similar feature was dropped from Firefox 3 and the only other browser on the market that currently has this feature is Safari.
Of course the feature is designed to allow the user to start a private browsing session in other scenarios, like when researching a medical condition for example.
The big question is though, is it enough to bring back Firefox users? Somehow I doubt it, but I like the idea of this feature, and it's already been available as a plug-in for Firefox for a couple of years now although I have not used it yet.
