Upon the release of Microsoft’s latest version of Internet Explorer, IE8, in the Beta 2 version this week (with the final version scheduled to arrive later this year), there have been some news reports on the new browser’s inPrivate feature, which reportedly enables users to browse the Internet anonymously.Â

According to PC World, when enabled, the inPrivate feature prevents the browser from saving all sensitive data such as log-in info, passwords, and history. It’s meant to be a security feature, but as PAP member Arnoldpalmer recently pointed out in the Forum, this inPrivate function may pose a potential problem for affiliates who rely on tracking.  Â

What do you think? Could this new feature (which is almost sure to be heavily utilized) threaten the way affiliate marketers do business?Â
