[2013-12-16] Incognito Mode

Maybe because you're the kind of mom who looks over her kid's shoulder to see whether he's using incognito mode. Asshole.

The dude looks pretty young to me, but either way, the woman's an asshole.

There is actually an excellent reason to browse the news in Incognito Mode -- lots of newspapers have a fixed number of free articles a month that are enforced by cookies. Nobody else does this?

I'm confused by the meaning of this comic. Can someone explain it to me?

He was watching porn, that's why.

Re... really?

Incognito mode is generally seen as the setting people use to browse porn (I prefer to Like and share mine on FB) since it doesn't save cookies/history. So why would anyone read news incognito?

"The wicked flee when no man pursueth..." dumbed down basically means people with questionable morals are always on edge and "runs away" from everything from the guilt he feels about his actions.

Most people tend to quickly close or switch tabs when watching porn and someone walks in on them thus why the news tab was open and not "Big ol' Titties VI". Because he closed that tab and had the decoy news tab open.

Personally, I think it would have been funnier without the proverb or at least a different caption because he was being pursued of sorts.

To be fair I wouldn't have known about 'incognito mode' until Ed bullied me* into swapping to Chrome about a month ago.


*To be fair, I had my first real problem with IE, and he asked whether I was a senior citizen when mentioning it to him. I've been wanting to change for a while, but I had neither had a problem and was too lazy to do so.

I didn't know what it was for a while since I use firefox and have been changing all my setting to do the same thing incognito mode does more or less since before chrome existed. I'm always baffled when someone says something about an incriminating page being found in their history or thanks to auto complete. If other people might use your computer and you go to pages you don't want them to know about, it is easy to set the browser to either not save anything or delete it all when closed. I use chrome on my newest phone and just set it to never save anything instead of having to select incognito mode.

Not saving cookies is a pain for some of my various financial accounts. I have to do a verification email or text message every time I log in for one of them. Fortunately, that is something I only do once a month to pay it. If it was my checking account, that would be a huge pain in the ass. Most the others just make me answer a 'secret question' every time.

Amusing example!

One of my high school teachers had his school laptop hooked up to the classroom projector, opened up an internet browser, clicked the Google searchbar and lo and behold, "2 girls 1 cup" popped down as the first option. He got really flustered and stammered out that he lent his computer to a friend. HA.

He should have just angrily screamed that it was for purely scientific purposes and then moved on acting like nothing happened. That is what I sometimes do when I get caught at something stupid or embarrassing.
