From google:
"For times when you want to browse in stealth mode, for example, to plan surprises like gifts or birthdays, Google Chrome offers the incognito browsing mode. Webpages that you open and files downloaded while you are incognito won't be logged in your browsing and download histories; all new cookies are deleted after you close the incognito window. You can browse normally and in incognito mode at the same time by using separate windows.
Browsing in incognito mode only keeps Google Chrome from storing information about the websites you've visited. The websites you visit may still have records of your visit. Any files saved to your computer will still remain on your computer."
Hence it an option to maintain privacy..the same feature is included in IE8(beta)
Hope it helps!

Set up incognito mode


Hi,
in order to enter "Incognito mode" simply use the following shortcut:
Ctrl + Shift + N

Or use the main menu of Google Chrome:
It's exactly to the right of the Address Bar, where you enter website addresses. It's icon represents 3 grey vertical lines.
When you click on it select the 3rd option - "New incognito window".

Incognito mode (browse in private) For times when you want to browse in stealth mode, Google Chrome offers the incognito browsing mode. Here's how the incognito mode works:
  • Webpages that you open and files downloaded while you are incognito aren't recorded in your browsing and download histories.
  • All new cookies are deleted after you close all incognito windows that you've opened.
  • Changes made to your Google Chrome bookmarks and general settings while in incognito mode are always saved.
Tip: If you're using Chrome OS, you can use the guest browsing feature as an alternative to incognito mode. When browsing as a guest, you can browse the web and download files as normal. Once you exit your guest session, all of your browsing information from the session is completely erased.

Our son installed google chrome on his computer. I understand you can run in stealth mode using this and we were wondering if there is any way to recover the areas he may have visited? We understand that...


Honest opinion:
If your son is computer savvy enough to install Google Chrome just to use it to thwart you, you will never be able to handle other countermeasures he may thow at you if you are having to ask this question. Not trying to be mean, just being a realist.

Best bet to make you happy: Take his computer away.
