Chrome itself wipes browsing history, cookies, and data entered in forms when you exit incognito mode. So you never really have to clear browsing data as you do in normal mode. Chrome also doesn’t trigger a clear browsing data dialog in Incogitno when you press the Ctrl+Shift+Del shortcut, the option in More tools also appears grays out, this will change. Google is turning on the dialog in Incognito mode.
Enable Clear browsing Data dialog for the incognito mode in Chrome
- Lanch Chrome
- Visit chrome://flags/#incognito-clear-browsing-data-dialog-for-desktop
- Select Enabled and restart the browser.
- Click on the menu and open Incognito Window
- If you press Ctrl+Shift+Deal or select Clear browsing data under More tools, Chrome asks to close all Incognito windows.
This is more or less conveying to the user through dialog that you need to close windows that were open private browsing for Chrome to delete browsing history during that session.
What’s new page is coming
Remember Edge insider channels? Edge displays what’s new and tips after you update the browser. The option to check the latest changes to Edge is also available in “Help and feedback”.
Taking a cue from that, after adding Tips to Help menu, Google is bringing “What’s new” menu item as well, which when selected, opens in a dedicated page at chrome://whats-new/
You need to enable the following flags
