Best Free Anonymous Surfing Service for Linux

JonDo (previously known as JAP) is my top choice and a Java application that performs the role of a local (PC based) proxy server that redirects browser requests via the JonDo network. This allows the user to configure their choice of any browser rather than requiring a change to Opera. (Review)

 

Best Free Antivirus for Linux

ClamTK Virus Scanner is a graphical user interface for ClamAV and designed to be an easy-to-use, on-demand scanner running on Linux systems.
