Hi all. I hope I'm not duplicating a post here. I did a search and came up empty. My question is this: Has microsoft done away with the index.dat file associated with internet explorer? I've read that it is no longer included. Can someone confirm or deny? I know that IE8 has an inprivate browsing feature which is a great privacy tool. But if your browsing activity is still recorded elsewhere, it sort of defeats the purpose.

I haven't seen any hard facts about this yet. Have you?
