While there are many mechanisms for privacy in the physical world, there are very few in the virtual world. In this session we will discuss the design and implementation of a private browsing mode in Firefox 3.


  • The history of private browsing: Asa
  • Do users care about privacy?
    • How do we find out (they will lie if we ask them)
    • What different types of privacy are there?
  • The user experience of private browsing
  • Implementation issues
  • How to market the feature
    • I believe assuming it is just for adult content trivializes this feature's overall importance to end users
    • Shopping for birthday presents
    • Researching medical conditions
    • Walkup kiosk use, internet cafes, etc.
