I know I can open an incognito window using Ctrl+Shift+N. You can not combine an incognito tab with the rest of "normal tabs". Is there a method/extension that allows me to do this?

The answer is still no.

It's not possible to have an incognito tab in the same window as non-incognito tabs. During the early days (2006-7) we discussed that possibility, but it led to too many confusing scenarios where people leaked their private data by mistaking tab types, and other problems. So we ended up forcing the two to be in different windows.


I don't think it's possible out-of-the-box. Maybe this extension can help: Incognito this

  • I already tried that extension. It does not have the option to do it. Thanks for the answer.

Cent Browser, which is Chromium-based, supports that.
