When Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8 browser makeover ships later this year, it will feature several nifty privacy features aimed at giving surfers control over their Web footprints.
- InPrivate Browsing: This lets you control whether or not IE saves your browsing history, cookies, and other data.
- Delete Browsing History: This helps you control your browsing history after you've visited Web sites.
- InPrivate Blocking: This informs you about content that is in a position to observe your browsing history, and allows you to block it.
- InPrivate Subscriptions: This feature allow you to augment the capability of InPrivate Blocking by subscribing to lists of Web sites to block or allow.
The new beta refresh will also include support for safer Web 2.0-type mashups, DEP (data execution protection) turned on by default in Windows Vista SP 1, domain highlighting to help flag phishing attacks and changes to the way ActiveX controls are handled.
