Go Incognito Chrome Extension
“Go Incognito” is a very useful extension for Google Chrome browser. It enables users to easily open the current Chrome tab in the incognito mode.
When you fire the extension (using its toolbar button, the context menu option or Alt + I keyboard command) it opens the current tab in an incognito window. It also closes that current tab in the normal window, and removes it from your browsing history.
To open the current tab in an incognito window, click on the toolbar button as shown in the above screenshot. Alternatively, you can right click any where on the web page and select the “Go Incognito” option present in the context menu.
Tip #1: Go Incognito offers a keyboard shortcut command: Alt + I. Use it to quickly open the current tab in the incognito mode.
Tip #2: By default, Go Incognito closes the current tab, and removes it from the browsing history. But, if you like, you can set it to not close or remove it from the history. Visit extension’s Options page for setting up your choice. You can always change it later.
Tip #3: Users can allow this extension in the incognito mode from Chrome’s extension page (chrome://extensions) to enjoy the reverse functionality. Using this feature, you can open an incognito tab as a normal tab just by clicking the extension’s icon on the toolbar.
If a user has enabled Chrome Sync, the removed URL is still shown on Chrome’s History page (chrome://history). The extension successfully removes URL from the browsing history – which can be verified by typing that URL in the address bar and you can see that no auto-complete or suggestion appears now. This issue is due to a bug present in Chrome, and we hope that the Chrome developers would fix it soon. You can track this bug here.
If the user has not enabled Chrome sync, Go Incognito works perfectly!!
