    nice but nothing to get excited about since there have been extensions that mimic this behaviour for a while now.

    If it becomes part of the browser, there may not be a need for any of those extensions. They exist because there isn't such a functionality within FF currently.

    So there is already a specific extension for private browsing in FF, i didn`t knowo_O Which one do you have in mind?

    I think this will be a good feature in the upcoming 3.1 release of Firefox, if anyone have already tried it out in the new beta release i would appreciate some opinion on this new feature. I`m currently running 3.0.3 myself and i think i will wait upgrading until the final 3.1 comes out.
