How to Make Private Browsing More Private ?

Privacy features such as InPrivate browsing in Internet Explorer 8 and similar features in Chrome and Firefox promise to protect your privacy by not keeping track of page history, temporary files and cookies. This may be enough to hide your tracks from a beginner computer user but there are still traces of what sites you visit within the local DNS cache. An advanced user can run the ipconfig /displaydns command in DOS to view the most recent sites visited. So in order to have more secure follow these steps :-
1. Lets first open Bing in Internet Explorer 8 by using its private browsing facility.
2. Open DOS & run ipconfig /displaydns command.
3. The DNS Cache shows where you have been.

4. The best way to improve the privacy of your InPrivate browsing sessions is to also clear the local DNS cache after closing the browser. Open up an administrative level command prompt and type ipconfig /flushdns and hit Enter.
