Is there a way to force private browsing in Safari 5 on a Mac?

As a web site, as administrator for other users, or what do you mean? – Daniel Beck Feb 16 '11 at 19:57

You can try this, it works in Safari 4.

A script is needed,

tell application "Safari"
end tell

tell application "System Events"
    tell process "Safari"
    tell menu bar 1
    tell menu bar item "Safari"
    tell menu "Safari"
    click menu item "Private Browsing"
    end tell
    end tell
    end tell
    end tell
end tell
