Beware shared machines

Small screenshot of the Safari private browsing optionThe Register carried this story the other week, but seeing as it came up again today, can’t hurt to post it:

Contractor UK: Firefox ‘ruined my five-year relationship’.

OK, so Firefox is great, but this is an area in which Safari trumps the other mainstream browsers I would suggest: sometimes you need the porn-surfing “private browsing” option in the OS X browser…

Note: this post is not an admission of any browser-related misdemeanour on my part, nor should it be construed as such.
