about:inprivate - Internet Explorer 9 Tracking Protection and Internet Explorer 9 ActiveX Filtering

about:inprivate - Back in April I wrote about how to use IE9's tracking protection and Active-X filtering settings to browse the web safely and privately. Recently I found that using IE9's InPrivate browsing feature along with the settings I recommend for tracking protection and Active-X filtering have a very nice benefit.

To fully understand this benefit please have a look at my original posting on IE9's tracking protection and Active-X filtering options.

IE9 Address Bar NO Icon

What I've now realized is that if you have enabled the settings as described in the article above and are now adding excpetions to the filtering options via the "NO" icon (which when hovered over reads: some content is filtered on this site) in the address bar - is that if you now open a browser window using IE9's InPrivate mode that you may turn on these exceptions using the icon, but that they aren't then stored in the registry as permanent exceptions. They are only turned on for that browsing session. This is very handy if you want to temporarily see a site's contents which require either option to be turned on but don't want a permanent exception added to the registry. Browsing this way keeps you from having to open the registry editor and removing items from those lists. (Again, see the previous article for details on the registry settings for tracking protection and Active-X filtering.

IE9 Start InPrivate Browsing

To start IE9 in InPrivate Mode right click on the IE9 icon in your start bar (or program files folder) and choose "Start InPrivate Browsing" from the menu.

Happy browsing!
