    Found this today, and it's pretty damn awesome! Even though you need to have private browsing enabled, it's well worth it for this fantastic UI design.

    Aside from the obvious, what does "Private Browsing" do?

    "Private Browsing" = "Porn Mode" or "Incase the Wife Checks My History Mode"

    I disagree not everyone here has the sole intent of looking at porn, or is trying to hide things from their wives.

    "private browsing" is a good way to do online banking and not have any of your information stored. any sort of personal information you dont want to store in safari but need to check is good for "private mode"

    PS thank goodness this is not just a iPad feature, it works with 3GS and up too

    Agreed. Also handy around holiday time so that your online gift shopping sites aren't revealed to family.

    But it works for porn also.

    Thanks for the tip! So in private mode, do you stay logged on to message boards or do you have to log on everytime?

    Can't try this now, but curious about what compromises are needed for this.

    I'm not sure on the iPhone, but in private browsing on my laptop, it signs me out of everything.

    Does private browsing store cookies or delete them when you exit?

    Why would you want cookies around when you are in "Private Browsing" mode??? They'd get all sticky. That's just gross man.

    I don't know about in iOS, but in desktop Safari it temporarily stores cookies then removes them afterwards. That way, sites that rely on cookies will still work.

    Edit: This may have changed in 5.1.1. It's behaving differently than it used to.

    I hear that! Always a plus in my mind as well. :D


    *Edit*: Back on topic to the OP, thanks for showing me that in the settings. I don't think I'll be switching back either lol

    Not a very discreet feature. Instead of being caught red-handed, you're caught black browsered!

    I just wish you could set this in Safari without having to go to the Settings app.

    If I want to switch real quick to private browsing for a bank site or something, it isn't a very quick operation to navigate to Settings, etc.

    Yeah, would be nice to have it as a button next to the address bar or something.

    It does look cool. I wish you could use this look and not have private on.
