Private tab

  • Suggestion: Private Tab

    What it is: Instead of having a whole window for surfing private, the user should be able to open a private tab in the same, normal, browser window.

    Why this would be useful: Sometimes you just want to do something that does not save cookies, history etc, but don't want to open a new window. If you want to browse private totally for a while, private windows can be good, but if you just want to quickly open a tab, private tabs are better.

    How it can be implemented: Like it was in Opera 12. The favicon could for example, like in Opera 12, be replaced by a private-browsing-icon.

  • Google Chrome has a possibility to show a service window (pop-up) as a tab. Plus anyway, nuOpera has a separate process for each tab, so I can't see too many obstacles to show a private browsing window as a tab by default, or like having a setting about that: in Ole Opera, there is a setting how to show pop-ups, for example.

    You forgot it doesn't take extra space in the system taskbar. Which looks tidier, especially if you have already got quite a bunch of tasks running there.
