A couple of years ago I wrote about a neat utility called Spotflux, to help make your web browsing more secure. You can read the original article at http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/strong-effortless-security-your-... In a nutshell, you could download a 10 MB program, and all your web browsing now goes via the Spotflux servers instead of directly between you and the web site. This means that your session is anonymous and untraceable.
Now, Spotflux has gone one further. The program is available as a browser add-in for Chrome. No longer do you need to download and install the complete program, and no longer do you need Java either. Just head to https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/spotflux-lite/fcakbkpmlidimpgl... and install the add-in, and you're protected.
At the moment, it's only available for Chrome, but versions for other browsers are promised.
Once you've installed the add-in, it will automatically protect you when required. This is especially useful if you're accessing sites where you want to keep all trace of your visit private. If you then want to disable the add-in temporarily at other times (it does cause occasional slow-downs, so you may well want to), just right-click the Spotflux icon in your browser address bar and choose Manage.
VPN solutions are notoriously hard to install and configure. But Spotflux, at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/spotflux-lite/fcakbkpmlidimpgl... is the easiest I've ever seen.
