Better late than never

One of the most often requested features in the private browsing support for Firefox has been the ability to open a private window without needing to close the entire session.

Feature disponible depuis longtemps sous Chrome. C’est d’ailleurs ça qui m’a fait switcher définitivement.

[I] was visiting Times Square with [my] husband Nov. 14 when [we] saw a shoeless man asking for change […] Right when I was about to approach, one of your officers came up behind him.
The officer said, « I have these size 12 boots for you, they are all-weather. Let’s put them on and take care of you. » The officer squatted down on the ground and proceeded to put socks and the new boots on this man.
