Google to plug Chrome loophole that exposes Incognito status to sites

Google will use the July 30th release of Chrome 76 to close a ’loophole’ where sites could check for Chrome’s FileSystem framework (disabled in Incognito Mode) and use its absence to detect a private session. Google will also change any other methods of detecting Incognito going forward.

I like DuckDuckGo and Brave but they haven’t spied on me for years and that makes me feel like they don’t know me sometimes.
