enhanced private browsing

Private Browsing by is an enhanced privacy mode app that utilizes your existing copy of Mozilla Firefox, Portable Edition. It has specialized settings, a flash blocker, plugins and local extensions disabled, a privacy-enhancing blocklist, a separate profile and a custom icon in the taskbar so you can easily distinguish it from your main Firefox Portable profile. It even has its own separate set of bookmarks. It's basically a more-advanced private browsing feature than those included in major browsers that can even be customized further by advanced users.

Private Browsing by works best with the Platform


ScreenshotPrivate Browsing by is an app that works with Mozilla Firefox, Portable Edition. It allows you to launch Firefox with a specialized profile with advanced privacy measures included. This profile has persistent cookies, history, download history and other privacy features off. Flashblock is included to block Flash Cookies and other nasties (if you decide to manually copy the Flash plugin to your profile). AdBlock Plus is included with a subscription to the EasyPrivacy list to block tracking scripts and sites as well as the standard ad-blocking list. Local plugins and extensions are ignored and will not be used by this custom profile. A custom icon for the task bar is included so you can easily distinguish your private profile from your normal one.

PRIVACY NOTE: As with any network software, your network traffic is still viewable by network admins. This just lets you avoid having local tracks on the PC or on your portable device and helps you avoid some internet and advertising tracking.
