We use private browsing to hide our browsing history, keywords from others.

If you want to browse privately without opening new tab here is an add-on for you "Private Tab". With this add-on you can browse internet privately without going for new window and you can enable or stop this option any time in your browser without affecting your work.

How to print web page

Sometimes we need to take the printout of particular Web Pages we browse but so much unwanted content will be there on the webpage like ads, other navigation icons or side bars etc which we do not want to print. For this, we have separate add-on "Print Edit". Once you integrate this with your browse, it will appear as a separate icon in the tool bar. If you want to print any particular page, just open that page and click on that icon, it will preview entire page you want to print. Just delete all unwanted content by pointing it out with your mouse.
