Mozilla opens Firefox privacy mode to testers

By Justin Mann on
There's more interesting Firefox news today, with Mozilla releasing a beta feature to a certain pool of testers. The new feature, the privacy mode, is intended to protect any particular browsing session from another, letting you browse knowing others can't spy on your afterward whether in your own home or at a public location.

The latter is probably where it can be made the best use of, particularly at Internet cafes or schools where computers may be shared with many people in a single day. It isn't mentioned how many testers are actually making use of the feature, but Mozilla expects (and many others do as well) for it to appear in the final release of Firefox 3.1. If you'd like to become a tester yourself, Mozilla has an open invitation for you.
