Chrome's Incognito Mode Broken in iOS 7

UK security firm Parallax has discovered that the private browsing Incognito mode in Google Chrome isn't working correctly in iOS 7. Specifically, the bug allows search terms used in Incognito mode to display as search history on the Google mobile site.

"This is especially important as Google Chrome has a unified search and URL bar, meaning that people often search rather than typing full URLs," commented Tom Faller, project manager at Parallax.

Google has yet to comment on this security flaw. Check out the video below for a demonstration of the bug.
