    Any way to have this load every time you open the browser? Sometimes I forget... I like to have it on while at work ;)

    Anything you browse at work will be knowable by work if you are using their internet access.

    I'm pretty sure there is a way to have it always enabled but can't find it at the moment. Try poking a google a bit.

    I actually googled it and there seems to be no easy way. Even changing the preference file to enable Private Browsing does not work, since this is not a saved preference, apparently. Other people on the internet suggest creating an AppleScript that launches Safari and enables Private Browsing, and then start Safari always using that script.

    BTW, http://www.tuaw.com/2005/05/02/porn-mode/ :D

    Um, dude, Private Browsing won't stop work from seeing what sites you visit. It only keeps it from being recorded on your personal computer.

    Perhaps he is talking about enabling Private Browsing on his work machine? :rolleyes:

    However, anything transmitted on the machine will be viewable in the packet data anyway.
