* New history entries will not be recorded
* New temporary Internet files will be deleted after the Private Browsing window is closed
* Form data is not stored
* Passwords are not stored
* Addresses typed into the address bar are not stored
* Queries entered into the search box are not stored

The new Beta also includes a "Delete Browsing History" option similar to Firefox "Clear Private Data" feature, allowing users to selectively delete browsing data with ease.
