How to Use Private Browsing in Safari on Latest OS X

We all know and love native OS X browser Safari, but for years it has been lacking decent private browsing feature. However, with latest OS X updates it came to an end. Modern Safari allows users to have private browsing mode turned on while browsing in separate windows.

If you remember, it was a burden to use Safari’s private browsing mode before. Whenever you wanted to turn it on, the browser changed all your open tabs and windows. What a hassle it was!

But now Safari allows you to open a new window in private mode while keeping the other in normal mode, with all your tabs intact.

How to turn on private browsing mode in Safari for OS X

Here’s two simple ways to turn it on:
