Ghost Incognito is a must-have extension for those of you who like to keep their surfing history a secret. This extension automatically redirects a selected website to the Google Chrome incognito window as soon as you open it, preventing that website from appearing in the history page.
To install this app, go to the Google Chrome Web Store and search ‘Ghost Incognito’. Then click on ‘Add to Chrome to install the extension. The extension can be accessed by clicking on the Ghost Incognito icon next to the ‘wrench’ icon. An interesting thing to note is the Ghost Incognito icon, which is a nod to the Pac-Man series of Video Games.
To use the extension, visit the website that you wish to, in the incognito mode and then click on the Ghost Incognito icon. The web page is redirected almost immediately to the incognito window. And any subsequent visits to that website will also open in the incognito window. If you wish to add more websites to the list, you can do that by following the same exact steps. The developers seem to know exactly who will be using their extension and for what purpose. All websites that end with .xxx are redirected to the incognito mode by default. And those who worry that typing the URL outside the incognito window will result in the website getting registered, fear not! Ghost Incognito removes that visit from the history list as well.
The only challenge in using this extension is that removing specific URLs is a real chore. Right clicking on the Ghost Incognito and choosing ‘options’ only lets you clear all the saved domains. To remove individual Websites you have to first go to ‘tools’ then ‘extensions’ and then click on ‘allow for incognito’. Next you have to go to the website while still in incognito and then click on the Ghost Incognito icon to manually remove that website from the list. Apart from this fault, the Ghost Incognito extension is excellent for those who wish that their visits to certain websites be hidden from prying eyes.
