Does what it says but it could be a lot more useful. 1. It should close the normal tab that it is opening from. 2. If there is a incognito window open, it should add to it rather than opening a new window. 3. It should remove the site from recent history. Currently, it does the easiest step in moving a tab from a normal window to incognito.

“Incognito This Tab” This extension is extremely light-weight and doesn’t require any critical permission like access to your browser history etc. and does not close the tab or remove it from your browsing history.

Work great, say goodbye copy & paste current active URL into new incognito windows. But hard to see the dark black icon button in the incognito windows. Note that Google DOES NOT allow incognito tab in the regular windows. We need to open in the new incognito windows.
