Chrome's incognito modes isn't quite

Geeky British Sun employee Lewis Thompson reckons he's found a way in which the "incognito" mode in Google's Chrome browser - the mode you use when you don't want people around you to know where you've been - isn't quite as incognito as it might be.

On his non-Sun/Oracle blog 'Lewiz' demonstrates that if you happen to use the zoom function on a site you're browsing in secret, Chrome keeps a record of the zoom level you applied and reapplies it.

It's not what we'd call a major problem. Your missus, for example, would have to guess that you'd been on the donkey porn page again and would maybe confirm her suspicions if she noticed that she didn't choose to zoom in like you did, or some other equally convoluted scenario.

Still it's worth checking out, if only to confirm your own suspcions that some people have too much time on their hands.

Lewis says; "I'm currently using Chrome 6.0.401.1 dev and reported this issue to Google a month or so ago and no fix has yet appeared. It does also work with 5.0.396.0 dev."
