Opt-in stats for Private Windows


I’ve just recently switched to Brave, and I love it! Thank you very much for all the hard work in making such a great browser! :heart_eyes:

By chance, I just noticed that the stats counter keeps ticking up when browsing in a Private Window. This doesn’t quite seem in line with the “Brave doesn’t remember what you do in a Private Window” blurp – there does indeed seem to be a record left to indicate that browsing has happened at all, even if there is no explicit information kept about which sites were accessed.

I do like the stats counter – maybe it could have an opt-in feature for logging stats from Private Windows? That way it would be possible to keep the score going if you want to, but it would also be possible to not leave such a visible trace behind on the new tab page.
