I'm keeping cookies and browsing history in session only, using an ad blocker, a vpn and using Duck Duck Go?
@three21 Private mode is a protection against people who have access to your computer and may log on to your browser. Ad blocker, vpn and private search would not be the same set of protections.

@three21 by using a non-shared context it is impossible to leak cookie (login) data between tabs from normal mode to tabs in private mode (and vice versa).
Private mode also does not keep a persistent history of visited sites.
With the right setup for default browsing, other differences should be marginal.

Private Mode also keeps your extension from snooping on you (assuming you disabled the option: "Allow in incognito".

Thanks for the replies. I was launching straight into private mode, but I think I'll stick to regular mode. I really love the fact that I can purge history and cookies after each session.
