How to Use Private Browsing in Safari on Mac OS X Yosemite

Safari has been with Apple for quite a long time, however, there was something the browser needed – an enhanced private browsing feature.

What’s new and why should I use Private mode?

This is a million dollar question. We can edify you of the way that the new private mode is all the more better and there’s no possibility of any private information break while you utilize it.
