Leave No Trace on Internet

There is no way the in-private or incognito mode can really leave absolutely no trace for web surfing, but there are some precautions from this article one can take to erase more potential traces. The last paragraph from article is about flusing out the DNS store.

In Windows, you can use “ipconfig /displaydns” from the command line to see what sites have been stored, and “ipconfig /flushdns” to clean them out. Mac users, meanwhile, simply need to invoke “dscacheutil -flushcache” from Terminal to return everything back to normal. If all goes well, you’ll likely never have a surprise party of gift purchase spoiled again.
