Tracking is a term that includes many different methods that websites, advertisers and others use to learn about your web browsing behavior. This includes information about what sites you visit, things you like, dislike and purchase. They often use this information to show ads, products or services specifically targeted to you.
The pre-release versions of Firefox 3.1 bring a new feature in this browser, the Private Browsing. This feature was introduced also in Chrome, the Google browser. The web browser usually records a lot of data while you surf webpages. For example, it records a history of all the web pages you have visited, so that later if you need help remembering a site you visited a while back, it can assist you in finding that site. Switching to Private Browsing no data will be stored on your computer and nobody can trace your online activities.

Typing addresses for sites you visit frequently is ineffective. Get your favorite Web page with just one click. Speed Dial is a set of visual bookmarks you see when you open a new tab, like a dashboard for your online life. To add a new page, simply click on an empty Speed Dial and Opera will make suggestions based on browsing history and bookmarks.
By default Opera has just 9 Speed Dial. How to add others..?!
