There are certain situations where users prefer to use Private Browsing to make sure they don't leave any trace of their browsing history on the computer they use. Every web browser has this feature and you can easily switch from normal browsing to private browsing. If you need to use private browsing more frequently, you may want to create a set of special shortcuts that start the browser you are using directly in Private Browsing. Here's how this is done in all the major browsers: Internet Explore (both the desktop and the app version), Firefox, Google Chrome and Opera.
A very useful tool that any web browser offers is Private browsing. Even though each browser calls it by a different name (InPrivate, Private Browsing, Incognito or Private Tab), this feature always does the same thing: allows users to browse the web without saving data like cache, history or cookies. However, this is done locally, meaning that only people using your computer won't be able to find out what websites you have visited. The websites you visited, your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and, in fact, every server your requests pass through, know what you visited. In this article we will show how to enable Private browsing in all the major web browsers and how to check if you are browsing privately or not.

While you may find many range extenders on the market, very few of them offer compatibility with the 802.11ac wireless networking standard. Luckily ASUS has launched the RP-AC52 Dual-band Wireless-AC750 range extender which is capable of extending both older wireless networks running at the 2.4 GHz frequency as well as modern networks using the 5 GHz frequency and the 802.11ac standard. Learn how well it works and whether it is worth buying, from this detailed review.

You'll need to know the SSID, as well as all of the other security information before you can connect. Read on for step-by-step instructions for connecting to a hidden network in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.
