IE 8 Could Get "Porn Mode": Would it Change Your Mind About IE?

Illustration for article titled IE 8 Could Get Porn Mode: Would it Change Your Mind About IE?

What is the best way for IE to gain market share back from Firefox? Porn. That's right-when it comes to the internet, the answer is always porn. You know it, I know it, and apparently Microsoft knows it because there are rumors floating around that they may incorporate a private browsing feature, a.k.a "porn mode," similar to Safari (Firefox pulled the feature from 3.0) that would allow users to thoroughly cover up their smutty tracks from anyone who might be checking their browsing history. The IE 8 Beta 2 release should be hitting any day now, so we shall see soon enough whether or not this feature made it into the build. But, the question is, would private browsing make IE more appealing to you, or is it a non-issue? [istartedsomething via ZDNet Image via ninamariebarbuto]

Oh yes, it is that time on a Tuesday evening when I type in "porn mode" in the Google Intrawebs and see what lovely ladies await me. The first link sent right back to Gizmodo on this link.

I am pretty sure my wife is behind this somehow.

And, just so I make the 'on topic' gods happy — I am not interested in any web browser that makes surfing for porn easy. I have always enjoyed the challenge, and have only been caught a half dozen times.
