Lilbits (12-18-2013): Dolphin Zero emphasizes private browsing

Over the past few years, private browsing or “incognito mode” has become a standard feature in most web browsers. It lets you surf the web without saving your history or passwords and can come in handy in a few different situations.

Want to use someone else’s phone, tablet or PC to check your email without logging them out? Just use incognito mode. Want to surf the web for things you umm… don’t want anyone knowing you were looking for? Yeah, it does that too.

Most popular Android browsers have some sort of private browsing mode, but the makers of the Dolphin Browser are kicking things up a notch with the launch of Dolphin Zero. It’s a browser that only does private mode — so there’s no risk of forgetting to flip the switch. It won’t save form data, browser history, cached files, cookies, or anything else. It also has “Do Not Track” enabled by default.

You probably wouldn’t want to use Dolphin Zero as your primary browser unless you’re more concerned with privacy than convenience, but it might be a nice addition to your Android phone or tablet if you can think of occasional uses for it.

    How about just make your stock browser not mess with me and stop with the gimmicks?

      I stopped using Dolphin browser when they had that privacy violation issue some years ago. Who knows what else they do. Kind of makes this “private” browser a joke.
