In macOS Catalina when opening a site like NYT, it says You're In Private Mode. How do you get around this? I can't find it.

thanks

This has to do with the anti-private browsing detection that sites like NYT are using. (Ricky Mondello is a Safari engineer at Apple.)

Wrong. The New York Times is looking for WebSQL to determine if the user is in Private Browsing. Prior to Safari 13, WebSQL was available in normal browsing, but unavailable in private browsing. In Safari 13, WebSQL has been removed entirely.
