Right Click, Open in Private Window

People are posting Youtube and other Big Data company links. These are terrible for tracking.

Could you please enable opening these in a private window?

That is a good idea, but it seems it’s impossible for now — Discord seems to have faced the same problem: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=9&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjM-fX71efkAhUVt54KHStqB_gQFjAIegQICRAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.reddit.com%2Fr%2Fdiscordapp%2Fcomments%2F6f4cks%2Fopening_an_image_in_a_nsfw_chat_should_open_in%2F&usg=AOvVaw2815vvYi5pFND5g3-1bxwi

Ultimately we don’t really have any control over who opens the link — we can’t really say ‘I want this link to open in only Chrome’. The OS grabs the link and sticks it to the default browser. We can’t pass extra data like ‘open in incognito’ or anything else, really, even if we could, seems browsers don’t have an API for that.

One workaround suggested at the link is to open the incognito window beforehand. So when you click the link, incognito browser is the one that grabs the link and opens it. You might or might not need to close your non-incognito tabs for that to work, I’m not sure.
