All browsers will offer to save passwords for you if you like, but that may not be the best of ideas. A fire storm of debate erupted online yesterday concerning the ease in which saved passwords can be accessed in Google Chrome, the only major browser on the market without a master password option at this time.

I have no idea about the Android's Chrome, but at least on iOS, incognito mode is next to useless. It saves the whole incognito session and loads it next time you want to go incognito. Your session might just be open to the person who borrowed your iPad!

I don't think anyone that uses my computer would know how to do that.

I agree with you. I don't know one person who ever looks at any chrome:// page.

I actually let a relative use my computer once, on my account, she had to do security check on her Facebook becuase of the different IP, when she finished she saved her password in my Chrome.
