    Today I've noticed that Firefox has a new feature "Private Window". It allows you to browse the web privately and it does not save cookies. So if it does not save cookies, this is a disadvantage for us affiliate marketers, isn't it?

    What if Google releases something similar for Chrome? If cookies are not saved, we are losing our commissions.

    It's for power users.
    People using this feature are unlikely to buy from affiliate sites that are specially made for earning affiliate commission.

    I'm pretty sure this isn't a new thing?

    Chrome has had incognito mode for ages.

    This feature is only activated when user is in private browsing mode, So majority of users do not/will not go for private browsing mode. So majority of your business will not be affected. happy marketing :)

    Don't do that. You'll still have the same IP address.

    If private browsing is not set as default from the installer then its nothing to worry about.

    Thank you guys all for your replies. I thought it was new, because I upgraded my Firefox yesterday and this feature was showed to me.

    Yeah it's not new I use it regularly, they just added "tracking protection" or some shit and made it come up after the update to tell you. Chrome on android has incognito too, but not something the general public really use so nothing to worry about, kind of similar to the adblocker plugins

    Hi,
    I was using Firefox from few months but after your post I just downloaded it. Yes, it is empowering the users. Google should provide same empowerment to Chrome users as well.

    exactly my thoughts, this is around since a few good years now

    on the other hand, Google and some other sites put super cookies on your system, incognito/private browsing mode doesn't prevent that and those cannot be removed with ccleaner either

    security task manager will show those, but if you want to remove them, you'll need the paid version, however "discounted copies" are available on the www

    so if ever wondered how the heck is Google still tracking you when you changed your ip, used private browsing and deleted the cookies with ccleaner, maybe even faked your system settings and user agent, then super cookies can be one more reason
