Incognito mode

  • This was the first thing I google'd after I downloaded Vivaldi

  • A real must have.

  • +1 for incognito mode.
    I use it all the time when testing the signed-in / signed-out state of a website.
    I'm sure other folks would have more of an opinion about how private browsing should work.
    My ideal would be:
    1. New window for private browsing
    2. Each new private browsing window is private from the other browsing windows (Chrome et al mix private cookies)
    3. Cookies can be shared between tabs in a private browsing window.

    This make it easier to test multiple logged in state (e.g. admin, none, member)

  • Is there a way to start vivaldi up from the command line so that it goes directly in private browsing mode?

  • Add "–incognito" option in the shortcut properties. However, not sure how one would do this on a Mac.

    One gripe I have about almost all browsers (other than Firefox) is, external links from other applications will always open in a non-private window. I like to always browse in private mode -- so that no history, cache data, private data, cookies and any other data are saved across browsing sessions.

    With Vivaldi's current implementation (I'm using Beta 2), I'd open an external link, and a non-private window opens to display the link, which is ok by itself. However, problem comes when forget that it's a non-private window and start browsing to other locations, which completely defeats the demand for privacy and private window mode.

  • add in the commandline of your shortcut; YourDriveLetter:\Vivaldi\Application\vivaldi.exe /incognito

    and in your register to be sure all hyperlinks are opened in private;

    @="YDL:\Vivaldi\Application\vivaldi.exe /incognito" – "%1""

    Registerkey has to be done after every update so better to save it in a .reg textfile
