Internet Explorer 8 gets better privacy features

Posted on Wednesday, August 27 2008 @ 01:00:40 CEST by

Microsoft announced that Internet Explorer 8 will get a better privacy mode.
"Users should be in control of their information. That's at the core of privacy," wrote IE 8 program manager Andy Zeigler in a blog post Monday. Ziegler used the post to confirm that IE 8 will include four new privacy features when it ships later this year.

InPrivate Browsing will let users control whether IE 8 saves their browsing history, cookies, and other Internet data. InPrivate Blocking will inform users about sites that can track their browsing history, and will allow them to block such activity. InPrivate Subscriptions will let users choose which Web sites to subscribe to or block.

A fourth feature, Delete Browsing History, gives users control over their browsing history after visiting a Web site.

"Privacy has two aspects: disclosure and choice," wrote Zeigler. "Disclosure means informing users in plain language about the data collected about them and how it's used. Choice means putting users in control of their data and giving them tools to protect it."
