Opera 10.50 has been released to be the fastest browser on the Internet. There are several cool features that the new version comes with, including Aero Glass, as well as supporting Aero Peek and Jump Lists. Learn how to surf privately using Opera 10.50.
Private Browsing feature
The feature that I’m really interested in is Private Browsing, that allows you to surf the web privately without leaving any trace of the websites you have visited. It’s useful when you are surfing using a public computer, do online banking, surf sites that you want to hide from other people.
How to use Opera Private Browsing mode and surf privately using Opera
Opera 10.50 private browsing support both private tabs and private windows.
Open a private tab: right-click the “+” icon on the tab bar, then select New Private Tab. Private tab got a lock like an icon at the right side of the tab icon. Any browser activity within the tab is private.
Open a private window: Click on the File menu, then select New Private Window. The private window is red colored. Any tab opened in the private window is a private tab.
Private browsing is the feature you can find on every modern web browser nowadays. But the Private Tab in Opera, which allows opening a site privately in normal browsing mode, is not found in other browsers.
Have you updated to Opera 10.50? What do you think of it? Will you use the private browsing mode?
Important! Remember that private mode does not hide your IP address, it only erases your browsing history! In order to hide your IP address, you need to use a proxy or a VPN solution that works with Opera. Such services create a private tunnel between your computer and the proxy / VPN servers. Thus, your online activity is hidden. Finally, take a look at the recommended list of hiding IP tools. Enjoy!
