Smile Incognito Window

Can someone tell me what this does or how it works
and whether it has any value?

Thanks for any and all comments.

Default Re: Incognito Window

Incognito window, private window, same thing. Basically your browser does not record or remember anything you do in it. No browsing history, no cookies, nada. If you download something with browsing privately the download is saved like normal.
