I though that way, too. My problem was just that implementing my ideas about did not lead to a "working" solution. And I really cannot release another time with a private "non-really-private" incognito mode. About your difficulties, I can just say that, IMHO, "private session" cookies have to be completely ignored even from the cookie dialog. They cannot be stored on disk. And they have to disappear from memory as soon as the private session ends. That's because the "empty cookiejar problem" looks similar. And using Qt network classes seems easier. On QNAM you can create a QNetworkCookieJar on the fly, use and delete it when your session finishes. With KIO you cannot do this as we have just ONE cookiejar kde-wise. So the approach has to be: - you cannot no more store cookies (dawit just implemented this, I think) - you cannot no more use old cookies stored (my first attempt here failed) - you have to manage your session "session cookies" (that is, use in your private session and delete them when it (and NOT kde session) finishes).

Well that is not entirely correct. We can definitely implement support for private mode in the cookiejar itself easily. There are a couple of approaches we can take. The difficult part has always been how to handle the "private session" cookies in the cookie management dialogs. Anyhow, I promised to try and implement this for 4.10, but I could not find the time. Perhaps I will find some time during the upcoming holidays.

Yes, I'm obviously trying. My first attempt was a tiny change in the KCookieServer/KCookieJar API to let people search just for persistent cookies. But it failed. I'm currently working on a second attempt following the same approach. If not, I though about implementing a different jar for the private sessions. But this second idea is probably an "hard" change in the kde cookie jar. I fear that "private sessions" are exactly the opposite idea around what the "monolithic" & "share it with every app" kde cookie jar is builded.

- New private browsing mode (NOT based on KIO, as it seems our cookiejar is not enough "malleable" for it. At least in kde4)

Are you working on patches to make it "malleable" enough in the future?

If you need something, make it happen, don't just hope for others to do so :)
