Microsoft Edge's Private Browsing Mode Isn't Actually Private

The forensic examination of most web browsers has proven that they don't have a provision for storing the details of privately browsed web sessions. However, in the case of Microsoft Edge, the private browsing isn't as private as it seems. Previous investigations of the browser have resulted in revealing that websites visited in private mode are also stored in the browser's WebCache file. The Container_n table stores web history, and a field named 'Flag' with a value of '8' shows that website was visited in private mode. An investigator can easily spot the difference and use this evidence against a person. The not-so-private browsing featured by Edge makes its very purpose seem to fail, and you can't help but ask how such a fundamental aspect of private browsing could be so fantastically borked. It beggars belief.

I was only impressed with Windows 10 that it was able to run steam games faster than 8.1.
It's spywareish by default, I used it a couple days and went back to 7.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?

Microsoft 10 in general sucks!

It is the worst version of Windows. Its the most spyware ridden, data mining activated, hijack capable, operating system out there.

It is also known to destroy computers. (Rumor has it that the new CEO had a sit down with the hardware manufacturers and they came up with a plan that Windows 10 would destroy older computers and hardware, in order to force people to buy new ones and thus increase sales and profits for both MS and the hardware providers).

There's no doubt it's being forced on people.
It's a personal data mining bonanza.
Combine that with telemetry for *ahem* god knows what reason,
and it all adds up to bad deal if privacy means anything.

To answer , if you buy a new PC , there are tons of win 7 OS reload disc out there
for as cheap as $10 , you'll need a product key , but those are easy to get

you contact a small independent pc repair shop and ask if they have a junk PC
you can buy , they'll sell you a parts rig for dirt cheap ( like $5 )
you want the key number off the sticker

use that key code when you are prompted as you are booting Win 7

Ta Da !

you now have Win 7

but before you go that far
try using the product key off the new PC , sometimes it works if the software
is older then what came with the machine

I do this shït all the time .
