Is there any good alternative to Chrome's Incognito?

It would be cool if it also had the option to turn off image loading.

Any why exactly is Incognito not working for you? Or are you actually just looking to disable loading of images? Ask about your real problem please, rather than your attempted solution. –  slhck Jun 28 '12 at 12:18
    
I'm using chrome for image loading and I want another browser for private browsing and non image loading. It is a hassle to switching image loading setting for different task. –  user101699 Jun 28 '12 at 12:21
    
And haven't you tried any other browsers yet to see if they work for you? –  slhck Jun 28 '12 at 12:22
    
I use two other browsers, firefox and internet explore. Firefox is for regular browsing where I need to save data and passwords. And opera is for testing web design. So i'm looking for another for this task. I don't like Safari. –  user101699 Jun 28 '12 at 12:27

Well, obviously Firefox does what you needed, you just have to look more closely :) –  slhck Jun 28 '12 at 12:28

Mozilla Firefox. In Options » Content » Load images automatically, you can disable automatic loading of images.

CtrlShiftP starts Private Browsing.
