This one is long so I'm just going to pull out some key aspects.

* InPrivate™ Browsing lets you control whether or not IE saves your browsing history, cookies, and other data
* Delete Browsing History helps you control your browsing history after you’ve visited websites.
* InPrivate™ Blocking informs you about content that is in a position to observe your browsing history, and allows you to block it

* InPrivate Subscriptions allow you to augment the capability of InPrivate Blocking by subscribing to lists of websites to block or allow.


Quote:
While InPrivate Browsing is active, the following takes place:

* New cookies are not stored
o All new cookies become “session” cookies
o Existing cookies can still be read
o The new DOM storage feature behaves the same way
* 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
* Visited links will not be stored

I wouldn't be surprised.

Anyways, InPrivate Browsing sounds just like things Safari has been doing for a while with the option to do Private Browsing (and I think Firefox can do it too, with an addon).
