Google is testing a new “Incognito Window Counter” feature that will show number of Incognito windows open. This should help you to keep track if you open multiple Incognito Windows.
Ever forget to close Incognito mode windows after opening a bunch of them? This feature should help you avoid some embarrassment.
A newly added flag adds a counter next to the Incognito icon. This will be visible only on the Incognito mode window. For example, if you have, say, three Incognito mode windows open, you will see number 3 next to the Incognito icon on all those three windows. However, you won’t see any such icon on regular Chrome windows.
Name: Incognito Window Counter
Description: Shows the count of Incognito windows next to the Incognito icon on the toolbar. – Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS
For some reason, this feature is not available on Android. Do you think this will be useful on Android phones too? Let me know in comments!
I tested this on my Chromebook, and here is how it looks like. First the Incognito window without the counter, this is when I have only one Incognito window open:
Now a close-up of the counter.
The counter is not really visible in the current color scheme. Hopefully they will improve this during the testing.
Useful? Gimmick? Let me know in comments!
