A recent Chromium build added some new options that let you filter content from web pages. A new dialog titled "Content Settings" adds new features for managing cookies, JavaScript content, images, plug-ins and pop-ups. Firefox has an option called “Safe Mode” that lets you temporarily disable themes and extensions, so you can still use your browser even if one of your add-ons is buggy. Google Chrome doesn't have this feature, but you can open an incognito window to temporarily disable extensions. If you want to create a shortcut that opens Chrome in incognito mode, duplicate an existing Chrome shortcut, right-click on the shortcut, select "Properties" and append this flag to the target value: --incognito (don't forget to add a space to separate the flag).
