How do you enable certain extensions, like Flashblock and Adblock, while using Chrome Incognito? I don't see much of a point of incognito mode if sites can still track you using Javascript, or now show massive Flash videos and animations that bring your system to a crawl. I've actually had to force-kill Chrome a few times when it comes across a site with enough Flash ads to make it become completely unresponsive.

Right when you first open a chrome incognito window it says to you, "Because Google Chrome does not control how extensions handle your personal data, all extensions have been disabled for incognito windows. You can reenable them individually in the extensions manager." enter image description here

This also includes a link to the extension manager with an option below each item to "Allow in incognito". enter image description here

Brilliant. Can't believe I didn't see that obvious note. – Cerin Apr 4 '14 at 19:52
Glad I could help! – Mr. Hargrove Apr 7 '14 at 13:03
I don't see the message with the link to about://extensions but manually going there is a simple matter once you know that's where to do it. – tripleee Sep 24 '15 at 7:43
