Firefox’s private browsing mode is pretty sweet when it comes to surfing the Web and hiding your tracks, however it is still relatively difficult to get into.

Thanks to the Light Switch add-on for Firefox, you can hide any other content on the website you are looking for that is not some sort of multimedia. Once you install and start using this extension, you can quickly "turn off the lights" when watching videos or checking out pictures too.
