Rumour Mill : If IE8 gets a "porn mode", would you switch?

By on

Is porn the best way to get Internet Explorer to regain that market share loss from Mozilla’s Firefox? No, we aren’t kidding…

Rumours have that Microsoft could be adding "Private browsing" – also known as "porn mode" – to Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2. This was one of the features during the development in Firefox 3, however ended up being pulled – and Safari has already had the feature in 2005.

It has already filed for two trademarks for CLEARTRACKS and INPRIVATE. CLEARTRACKS is stated to be a computer program "computer programs for accessing and using the Internet and the world wide web; and computer programs for deleting search history after accessing websites".

INPRIVATE, however, is stated to be a program "for accessing and using the Internet and the world wide web; computer programs for disabling the history and file caching features of a web browser; and computer software for notifying a user of a web browser when others are tracking web use and for controlling the information others can access about such use".

So, would this porn mode make you use IE8? Comment Below!
