It can tell the site you're going to what site you've last visited and when you're done there, what site you're planning on visiting next.  It can tell the site what type of browser you're using and your IP address also. 

http://www.spiesonline.net/

The link above will illustrate some of this.  It doesn't reveal where you've been last or where you're going but if you want a website not to have that information, open a new browser window and either type or paste the link of your choice into it, then close that browser window when you're finished at that particular website. 
My personal choice for online banking or any transaction where I may need to give credit card or important password information is to open a new browser window then delete the temporary files and close that browser window when I'm done with my transactions.   Nobody else needs to see if I've logged into online banking, eBay, etc.  Wink

Internet Explorer 8's In Private Browsing feature explained by Microsoft


Wiki on IE 8's in private browsing and filtering

It's just up to the IE 8 user to turn on the In Private feature. I don't know what the flaws are, but knowing Microsoft, I'm sure
there are flaws. :-D
