How to turn on private browsing?

  • Right-click on a link and open it in an Incognito Window.

    How to turn on private browsing, please?

    V-menu/File/New Private Window.



  • I know i am tangentialising with this question, but … WHY do some users wish to use Private Window / private browsing / Incognito Window?

    I read this, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Privacy_mode , & it gave me the rather strong feeling that anyone using this browsing mode in the belief that it really is "private", might be clinging to a false hope. Hence, i am curious.

    It's purely local, ie your housemates/family/others using that computer/browser will not see what you've done.



  • Also somewhat tangential, but why is it called "Private Window" in one place and "Incognito Window" in another?



  • Another Question.

    I want to have private-mode on startup. It's annoying to start vivaldi just to start a private vivaldi.

    I can't find any working CLI option to do so, any suggestions?

    P.S.
    A complete list of all CLI paramters within the help pages would be a very good idea.



  • I think there's a switch you can apply to the desktop shortcut - something like "– incognito"

    Can't recall the actual syntax.



  • Yes! "–incognito" (without the space) does the trick!
    Thanks!
