[webkit-help] Private Browsing in WebKit 2

Hi all.

I’ve got a project that I’m looking to migrate to WebKit 2. But I want to make sure in advance that I can enable the same kind of private browsing that WebKitLegacy uses.

I’ve looked at bug 140198 <https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=140198>, which seems to suggest that using a non-persistent WKWebsiteDataStore is the right approach. This seems reasonable to me (and an excellent fit for my project), but I didn’t get a clear impression from the discussion on that bug if doing this is going to be the preferred approach in the future.

I also want to make sure that certain security features remain in effect: for instance, that visited links are not marked, and that web-SQL databases aren’t getting shared between web views. (I actually don’t mind if visited links are marked, so long as the history is not shared between web views.)

Does anyone have any advice for best practices in getting fully-private browsing? I’m compiling WebKit, so using private methods is not an issue in my case.

- Talus.
