Reddit is an fascinating and wonderful collection of what the Internet has to offer, however their agressive link tracking is disappointing.
Recently Viewed Links
If you have an account at reddit, when you are browsing you are provided with a list of Recently Viewed Links. Arguably, this area provides functionality beyond your browsers built-in history function (personally, I’d argue against this).
Sometimes there are things on reddit you don’t want in your browser history, for example when searching out gift ideas for your wife. (I’m certain this is the most common use case)
Not so Incognito
As you can see in the image below, despite using Open Link in Incognito Window, reddit has tracked this click. In addition, I’ve found right clicking on the link and copying it is also tracked by reddit.
