Why You Should Shop Online Using A Private Web Browser Window

All web browsers have it.  Apple's Safari calls it a "private", Google's Chrome refers to it as "incognito." They allow you to surf the web with more privacy as websites aren't saved in the browser history and web sites cannot load tracking software, known as cookies, in your web browser.  This is a nifty feature if you are looking for a lower price when shopping.  For instance, online auction web sites and travel booking web sites use your search history to manipulate the price in their favor knowing you're searching for a deal or your purchasing behavior. It also serves a practical mode when using a public computer.  Private mode means your data will not be accidently left open for the person following you to view.
