Private 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. 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.

App Notes

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.

Private Browsing By must be installed alongside Firefox Portable so that the PrivateBrowsingByPortableApps and FirefoxPortable directories are within the same parent directory. Both browsers can not be run at the same time.
