Chrome now prevents websites from checking private browsing mode

As promised, Google is willing to make websites respect the incognito mode whether they like it or not. Chrome (76) released Linux, Windows, and Mac and closed the site slot that allows you to discover browsing by searching for a mainframe. If you're tired of sites that insist on signing in or using standard mode, you can loosen the horizon.

We've tested the new approach ourselves, and it seems to work with at least two news anchors that have been turned off by users who have not signed in.

As before, this is likely to trigger some site operators. Many know that people use incognito mode to avoid using secure payment programs (with a few free articles per month), and their login requirements have at least helped them keep track of these free readers. Now, they'll either have to look for other ways to identify cloaking (something Google intends to stop) or accept that they will not be disabled in the future.
