Is there a way to use WikiTree-X in Incognito mode?

Hello!  I've started using the WIkiTree-X extension for Google Chrome and I'm liking it and can see the vast potential it has in making things easier for me when adding profiles.

However there's one thing that bugs the heck out of me.  Whenever I use it, it opens a new window in normal browsing mode instead of the incognito mode which I was already using.

It's a silly personal preference, but I exclusively browse the internet in incognito mode, and I HATE it when a website or extension takes me out of incognito mode!

Is there a way to make WikiTree-X open new windows in Incognito mode? Like a setting on  it somewhere that I can't find?

If not, is there any possibility that Justin York could update the extension to have that be an option?

I really really want to use this extension for transferring profiles from Find A Grave!  It works.  I just can't stand it right now because it doesn't open new pages in incognito mode.

There's a simple option I can add to the extension so it supports this behavior. I'll update it as soon as I can and post back here to let you know when it's available.

I just published v1.6.0 of WikiTree X which should properly support incognito mode. It will be available within the hour. Let me know if that works for you.

For anyone that's unfamiliar with using extensions in incognito mode, you must specifically grant extensions permission to be used in incognito mode.
