The Google Chrome Incognito mode is a private browsing mode in which the web browser does not record information about the browsing session. This means that it is not possible to find information of that session in the browser history, cache or cookies.
The incognito mode can be started by pressing Ctrl-Shift-N or by selecting New Incognito Window from the tools menu in the browser toolbar.
There is however no option to open an existing website in incognito mode.
Incognito Switcher is an extension for the Google Chrome browser that can do just that. The extension adds an icon in the Chrome address bar that provides access to this functionality.
A click on the button will change the state of the current tab from normal mode into incognito mode and vice verse.
A double-click on the icon will switch the whole window to incognito mode and back to normal mode.
It should be noted that switching a tab or window to incognito mode will not remove the records that already exist in the browser, only future records will be removed by the private browsing mode.
This makes it for instance interesting when an Internet user encounters wants to open links on a current website in incognito mode.
Keyboard shortcuts can be configured in the options of the Chrome extension to switch to or from incognito mode with the keyboard.
Incognito Switcher can be downloaded from the Google Chrome extensions gallery.
