6 Comments to About InPrivate and Incognito. What’s private browsing? Which browser is the best?

  1. Peter K says:

    Honestly, the only way to really browse privately is to use a no-log VPN. ExpressVPN and PIA are good examples of anonymous, secure VPNs

      VPN helps a lot with private browsing. That’s why we identified Opera as the best, because it has a built-in VPN service, that you can enable with a single click.

        A bit disappointing the article is! – as the Yoda would say 🙂

        Referring strictly to the privacy concerns, otherwise great on the features and usability notions!

        When it comes to privacy and software, do as with other prodcuts, consider at least two main things:
        a) company location/ownership
        b) mission/scope (considering also revenue model)

        To the point, Opera, as of mid 2016, is owned by the Chinese and they are a ‘free’ type of product, strongly relying on data and advertising.

        Then if you are very into privacy, and you don’t have the tech skills, research/follow at least a couple of tech people/blogs. Searching reviews would reveal things like the ‘VPN’ solution (free) offered by Opera is an extension based Proxy-like-VPN. A disillusion compared to a standalone VPN solution!

        Definitely a no-no, in my opinion. I prefer to always look for new alternatives, the new-comers strive for a piece of the pie approaching different angles. Won’t mention any for the sake of bias, but there are a bunch out there. And haven’t seen any in this article, just old-school beasts with old-school tricks.

        Keep up the good work!

          In this article, we compare private browsing modes that are built into standard web browsers. That’s it!

          We agree with you that a standalone VPN product like Cyberghost or NordVPN would be better.

    I’m surprised that you didn’t review Brave browser in this interesting article.

    1. Ciprian Adrian Rusen says:

      We chose the most popular browsers for Windows.
