Chrome Provides the Real Incognito Mode Experience

Chrome 76 Provides the Real Incognito Mode Experience

The files created in Incognito mode will be stored in RAM

Incognito mode keeps the private-browsed data safe from others to monitor. At least people have been relaxed thinking this way since its introduction. But here is the fact, it does not keep users 100% away from being observed. Targeting such instances, Google is planning to deploy its new Chrome version to let people left alone with incognito mode.

In some days, Google is about to release its next version of the desktop browser, Chrome 76. A browser with the ability to stop websites – particularly those with paywalls – from detecting Incognito mode.

The move aims to make private web surfing more seamless for users and prevent sites from blocking the users if they are in Incognito mode.

Understand the Incognito mode

Google’s Incognito mode is supposed to deliver private browsing experience, where users are logged out of services, no history recorded, and cookies and other local data gets cleared after every session.

However, the feature found infiltrated as it has long loophole; a FileSystem API gets disabled automatically in Incognito, which gives developers a way to know when it is running and when it’s not.

Google has now a better view

The breach came into light and now publishers know users employ Incognito to bypass their paywalls in the website. In order to stop such unethical user activity, they use the API loophole to detect Incognito and block those whose web activity cannot be tracked.

A number of publishers are in practice of using this trick to block the mischiefs, including The New York Times, but Google has said it will prevent the exploitation of the bug by modifying the working of the FileSystem API in Chrome 76.

Files stored in RAM

Furthermore, the search giant says Chrome 76 will store files in computer RAM, which will ensure the files created in the Incognito mode will be erased as soon as you close the session.

It also looks to prevent sites from detecting the mode and blocking out users from browsing content through metered paywalls.

Warns to roll out strict paywalls

Planning to release Chrome 76 on July 30, Google advised companies to switch to stringent paywalls or other methods to keep users from accessing their content.

Its help leveraging an issue to detect Incognito and block users isn’t the way to go as it undermines the principles of Incognito browsing.
