This Microsoft Patent May Automatically Hide Porn Site History from Edge Browser

At times we surf the internet and search things that we don’t want others to know. This can include some cheesy TV series that we love to watch but are ashamed to confess to others. It can be an explicit adult site, a dating site, or even a serious health issue site that we don’t want to share with others. In all such cases we appreciate privacy. This is when incognito mode comes into play. The incognito mode or Private browsing hides our search results and spares us from the prying eyes of other users. We can search any thing we wan and nobody can find it out.

Microsoft’s neo age web browser, the Edge Browser is taking inPrivate browsing to a whle new level. In this case of Mictosoft Edge, you don’t need to manually open the incognito or inPrivate tab to search the sites. Rather, the browser will be able to automatically switch browser modes based on the sites you visit. There will be some definite algorithm by which the browser will decide which search results to hide.

According to the brieifing done by the patent “Automation of Browser Mode Switching”:

Techniques for automation of browsing mode switching are described. According to various implementations, a web browser is operable in multiple different browsing modes, including a normal browsing mode and a private browsing mode. Techniques described herein enable automatic switching between browsing modes based on different mode triggers, and enable user configuration of various mode change behaviors.
The patent offers 13 different drawings, showing different examples of when the browsing modes could be switched, and flow charts detailing the logic behind them.

As mentioned before, there will be a set of algorithms for the Edge browser that will decide what type of search results are to be filtered. But still a question remains as which types of information will be considered. Types of sites would obviously include adult content, but could also include social media or even medical sites. The list is ambiguous.
