Incognito is a Safari extension that prevents Google and Facebook from following you on the web.

It's a jungle out there
When browsing the web, you are continuously being tracked. Not only by the websites you are visiting, but also by major companies that embed their 'content' into other websites through ads and analytics. As a result, companies like Google and Facebook have an almost complete picture of your online activity.

Your online counterspy
Incognito protects your privacy by blocking Google Adsense and Google Analytics on non-Google pages. In addition, it allows more...

This works well on my MBP (Safari 6.1.2, OS X 10.8.5) and I second the recommendation of Ghostery. If you want to dig out the junk in your Safari cookies file, try Autodistract.

Blocking trackers and other web bugs is always welcome and Incognito seems to work quite well.
Another really good(yet far more comprehensive) web bug blocker is Ghostery...it's available for Firefox and Opera as well as Safari.

When I want to browse privately I run it in Private Browsing mode!
What news does this Extension brings to us?

Private Browsing mode prevents YOUR computer from storing info regarding what you might be doing.
This extension is trying to prevent web servers from keeping fingerprints regarding where you have been and what you were doing.
The two things are completely different and unrelated.

The question I want answered before I try this is how does it work? How do we know that we aren't blocking Google etc. but making our information available elsewhere? When you try to install the extension you get a warning saying:

"Install extensions only from sources you trust. Extensions can modify the appearance and behavior of Safari, and access your private information at websites."

I like the sound of this extension but it would help if the developer clarified how it works.

How come this extension is not listed on the official Safari extension site:

https://extensions.apple.com/

Just wondering...

Apart from that I like the idea behind it.

There are lots of Safari extensions which are not listed in the official Apple extension gallery. Apple only highlights what it thinks are the best extensions, and, as is generally obvious, Apple doesn't know about everything. You should use the same common sense precautions before installing these as you do with any software.

Personally, my rule is not to download or install anything that doesn't have at least 1,000 previous downloads. There are no guarantees, but you hope that anything malicious or buggy will get discovered by then.

Ghostery does this and much more, is an official Safari extension, and has been in use on Firefox, Chrome and Safari for years. I don't know how it works, but it does.

This sounds like a really useful little extensions. Any plans for a Chrome version? Unfortunately, Safari's not my browser of choice.

Chrome can track you online without Google Analytics and Adwords. That's Google's gift to you. If you want to use Chrome without usage tracking, check this out:
