Internet Explorer 8 and Chrome browsers have modes that are to keep the user's surfing habits private. My question to the Experts is, "How effectively do these browsers actually protect the privacy and browsing tracks?"

Are the track recorded during use the erased as the browser is closed? To me that would possible be a concerned if a undelete scan of the disc were performed. Or are the normal cookies and history, and other information that is normally recorded on the hard drive not written when browsing in these modes (InPrivate or Incognito).

I would appreciate knowing the details of how these browser work in these modes.

Thanks,
Frank
