Very short minded to not even investigate how Chrome handles the cache and just make some quick conclusion based on the info-message ...

I did try and investigate how Chrome handles the cache but could not find any definitive answers from Google at that time...I thought I made that clear.
Anyway that is merely a side issue, the point I was making back then was, in my opinion, Incognito suggested a higher level of privacy than it actually delivered. Nothing more than other browsers offered via automatic deletion of history, cookies, private data, etc.
This original topic was posted in June, 2009 and all references to Incognito settings and associated comments were relevant at that time. The situation may, of course, have changed in the interim.
If that is the case and the situation has indeed changed you would be better served by politely pointing that out rather than lambasting anyone who dared to be mildly critical.
The following is a direct quote from a comment, posted around that time, on the official Chromium site:
"Incognito mode should use a separate HostResolver with its own HostCache.
That way in-memory state gathered by incognito mode doesn't outlive closing the final incognito window.
Right now the DNS entries gathered by incognito mode will show up in about:net-internals even
after closing the last window, since it is using the same host cache."
Here is another:
"I think that the cache should be deleted after closing the incognito
window, regardless of whether the main Google Chrome process is running.
The old incognito cache should not be viewable.
What happens instead? As long as the main chrome.exe process is running, one can see the cache of old incognito sessions."
There are many more similar comments, suggesting that the cache was not being cleared and therefore was recoverable at that time.
You are obviously a fan of Chrome, that is fine....it is a very good browser. If you disagree with something written here then collate some facts which confirm that opinion and present us with the evidence.
Submitting an alternative argument based on fact is a much better way of getting your point across than merely posting unjustified insults.
