Chrome extensions in incognito mode

angelseph - January 3, 2012 - 6:34pm

Anybody knows of a chrome portable version that supports extensions in incognito mode?
Thanks.

Options

Go to chrome://settings/extensions, click the small drop-down at the left of any extension, and check "Allow in incognito mode".

cant do

yes but off all the portable versions I have tried neither has that option, i.e., the checkbox "Allow in incognito mode" does not appear.
I have seen that option only when installing the regular (not portable) version of chrome.
Thanks.

blame Google

I think we can blame Google for this Sticking out tongue

I found this with a bit of luck.

They've change the layout on the extensions page and the checkbox "Allow in incognito mode" does not show unless you click the little grey arrow to the left of the extension.

SRWare Iron is the same.

I don't use Chrome or Iron that much (mostly I use Firefox), but I have both installed on a USB Memory stick (just in case) and I could remember seeing the "Allow in incognito mode" checkbox in older versions of Chrome/Iron without having to click on anything to show them.

It was a shock to go looking at Chrome/Iron extensions page and find it 'missing' this option.

This must be a change they have have made in then last few months or so? I wonder why they would hid the "Allow in incognito mode" checkbox? To save space on the page or to stop *everyone* from using it?

As I said,

Not Recommended

As extensions could mess up part of the incognito or incognito mode, they likely don't want to encourage people to use the feature.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
