So what is this all about?
Private browsing enables user to surf the web without leaving any “logs “about its activity. There will be no caching, cookies, history or neither the form data.
Why would you need this feature anyway? As most people notice, it’s for adult site users. Of course, this is not the only use. Some of the IE users requested this feature for ages. Maybe Microsoft is finally listening to its users?

The behavior began few days ago whene Sitemeter updated their scripts. Unfortunately, they forgot about a bug of the Internet Explorer (really old one) that has been causing a “Operation aborted” error.
If your web page had a Sitemeter counter, Internet Explorer users eventually see an “Operation aborted” error message. Once they click OK, the whole page disappears and is replaced by a blank page.
Whose fault is this? Both of course. However, this is not a new and/or unknown bug; they just didn’t test it on Internet Explorer = bad idead.
