Chrome incognito mode problem: History tracked by IE

While browsing in Chrome's incognito mode, some (but not all) web pages visited and files downloaded show up in Internet Explorer's history. This happens when I already have an IE session open, then launch Chrome. Strange. Anyone else experiening this?

How to kill pages


A bit vague what type of pages ?
You might have to kill the tracking cookies

Websites use small files called "cookies" to track their visitors' use of the site (e.g., when they visit, whether they logged in or not and what pages they visited). Unfortunately, some unscrupulous website owners use cookies to track visitors' entire Internet usage, including visits to secure websites with private information. If you have been on websites that you don't trust, you should kill your cookies to avoid potential security problems.
Open Internet Explorer, click on the "Tools" menu, then select "Internet Options." Click on the "Delete" button in the "Browsing history" section of the dialog box. Select the "Cookies" check box, then click on the "Delete" button to clear your cookies. b> Firefox b> Open Firefox, click to open the "Tools" menu on the menu bar, then choose "Clear Recent History." Select "Everything" from the "Time range to clear" drop-down menu, then click to check the check box next to "Cookies." Click on the "Clear Now" button. Hope this helps/

My internet keep crashing


If your Internet Explorer keeps randomly crashing (closing by itself), there may be an add-on or temporary page disrupting the connection. Every time you browse the web, Internet Explorer keeps track of the websites you visit. It keeps these pages, along with cookie trackers, in the "Temporary Browsing History" folder. Some websites cause Internet Explorer to crash.

Open the Internet Explorer browser. Go to "Tools > Delete Browsing History." Hit "Delete All." Check off the box that says "Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons." Hit "OK." Close and reopen the browser. b> Disable Add-Ons b> Go to "Start > Search." Type "Internet Explorer" and hit "Enter." The computer will search for any files with this label. Double-click on the file that says "Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)." This will allow you to browse in IE without any additional plug-ins or add-ons that might be causing the browser to crash. b> Reset Internet Explorer b> Open the IE browser. Go to "Tools > Internet Options." Hit "Advanced." Click on "Reset" and then hit "Enter." Close and reopen the browser. Hope this helps.

To check history:

Open a new tab (Ctrl+T) and click the 'View Full History' button towards the bottom (make sure you are NOT in incognito mode).

From that page, click 'Edit Items' in the top right corner, then click 'Clear all browsing data' to delete your history.

How do I disable chrome from displaying my logging information?


Open Chrome and press CRLT+SHIFT+N

You will get a message :-
You've gone incognito. Pages you view in this window won't appear in your browser history or search history, and they won't leave other traces, like cookies, on your computer after you close the incognito window. Any files you download or bookmarks you create will be preserved, however.

Going incognito doesn't affect the behavior of other people, servers, or software. Be wary of:
  • Websites that collect or share information about you
  • Internet service providers or employers that track the pages you visit
  • Malicious software that tracks your keystrokes in exchange for free smileys
  • Surveillance by secret agents
  • People standing behind you

Chrome Incognito Mode


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!
