Private browsing windows are a feature of Yosemite, but not in Mavericks or earlier. When you upgrade to Yosemite it will be a menu option under File.
I hoped private browsing would prevent follow-up sales pitches after a search. If it gets rid of cookies, won't this help?
Yes, it will. But only if you use it, which is probably not convenient in some cases. You need to remember to turn it on, and then go to the site that you think does the follow-up ad, and then turn it off when you are done. But if you are logged into a site (Facebook, Google, etc) then it isn't necessarily relying on cookies. So this would only work on a site that you aren't a "member" of.
Such as Amazon, ebay? . If not, perhaps bps only useful ,as you say, for others sharing computer?
Right. Wouldn't be useful on those usually, since you would be logged into your user account when at those sites.
I use Private browsing on my iPad as the quickest way to close all Safari windows. Just switch to private browsing and then back again.
to open a new, private browsing window, do you mean I open a new window first then turn on private browsing, which would not affect the Safari window that's already open? thx
