  • (2022-09-09) Saul: Super useful extension. Nice options compared to others. Extra points for NOT including a context menu item for links, since Chrome already has this built in!
  • (2022-04-12) Thomas Schittli: Thanks a lot!
  • (2022-02-02) ZoomStop: Does what it says and gives you some options to configure how it works. This alone makes it better than all the other Incognito Here type extensions on here.
  • (2021-07-19) C Alonso C Ortega: Excelente idea para hacer mas rápido el uso del navegador
  • (2021-07-14) Nik Fisher: great extension, saves so much time
  • (2021-06-23) T Mac: This is a quick way to switch the tab to an incognito, and that works well. It also does remove it from the history, excepting that you can still "Reopen closed tab" on it. Which is fortunate, because you cannot turn off the hotkey of Alt-I. Because I switch between Mac and Windows frequently, I often hit Alt-I when I desire Ctrl-I for italics, e.g. in Slack (web), but it then moves it to an non-logged-in incognito. Would prefer to be able to turn off the hotkey, or change it.
  • (2020-09-07) Jose E Montoya: Está exelente la recomiendo cien por ciento gracias por el aporte
  • (2020-08-29) Shika Kiss: incognito window like it should, but it doesn't delete the history. thank you how come...???
  • (2020-08-14) Ory Zaidenvorm: Does what it says it does Keyboard shortcut, closes the original tab, control of size of window, no unneeded permissions.
  • (2020-07-25) Triet Bui Minh: This extension is simple, but that's what I need.
  • (2020-07-08) Hagai Arzi: Works as expected. Just missing the option to change the keyboard shortcut. (Or at least write what is it in the options window)
  • (2020-03-20) Trevor Beck: When you're constantly sharing documents, this is an AMAZING extension. It quickly allows me to test that I have files shared so Joe Public has access the files I need to be shared out.
  • (2018-12-12) Bernhard Üllenberg: Thanks for this!!
  • (2017-11-21) Stefan Schulz: Thanks for this extension! A third option would be great: "Close but don't remove from history"
  • (2017-09-18) Christina Boddie: very useful,thank you!
  • (2016-09-17) Alex Clovis: nothing happened accept it closed the current window, i read the instructions but whenever i enter the command it only closes the current tab but doesent open a new one
  • (2016-08-13) Michael Bostick: it opens in an incognito window like it should, but it doesn't delete the history
  • (2016-07-11) P. B.: To be able to use the extension both ways would be nice. Non-Incognito Tab -> Incognito Tab and Incognito Tab -> Non-Incognito Tab

  • (2018-09-16, v:0.0.6) Alex Zimmer (cazafka): Workaround for incognito tab not opening
    macOS High Sierra: Version 10.13.6 Chrome: Version 69.0.3497.92 (Official Build) (64-bit) Tab does not open as incognito with the following setting "The incognito tab should open: Maximized (Default)" changing the setting to "Normal" fixes the problem, the incognito tab opens in the same size as the existing non-incognito tab
  • (2018-09-04, v:0.0.6) Broken now
    Chrome 69.0.3497.81 breaks it.
  • (2017-02-02, v:0.0.6) ???
    well it worked fine until i found out that it doesn't delete ANY recent browsing data when you go on it
  • (2016-11-30, v:0.0.6) Removing it
    How can I remove it from my computer after I have downloaded it?
  • (2016-10-12, v:0.0.6) Luisa Larrabee: Cookies
    Does it remove all cookies used by that tab too, when I send it to incognito mode?
  • (2016-08-02, v:0.0.5) History recovers when window reopens
    While initially opening a tab in incognito will have it removed from history, upon closing all the browser windows then launching chrome again, history will be added back for some strange reason...
  • (2016-07-11, v:0.0.2) Davide Montarsolo: if you have only 1 tab closes everything
    if you have only 1 tab open and you go incognito it closes everything and opens nothing! running xp i know but this seems a major bug!!
