Default Anonymous browsing services/downloads

Hello folks,
I've been lurking on these forums for some time and have been very impressed by the level of competence demonstrated by the responders to various posts.

Sooooo, I have a question for you knowledgeable people out there:
  • Does anyone use an anonymizer service, or downloaded app and would you share your experience with me?

    Though fairly competent with using various apps on my PC, I know nothing about anonymous browsing so a fairly sympathetic reply would be appreciated.

Default Thanks

Thanks for your observation, (funny that I couldn't find it myself). I am hopeful of getting a positive reply from Anonymiser

I'll admit I used to use JAP and liked it very much. Then the administrators at JAP modified the system (I can't recall exactly, but it had something to do with JAVA) and it stopped working for me. I also recall trying TOR and hating it at the time, but I can't for the life of me remember why. I may try JAP again, but to be honest I never really had a reason to use it. I just liked the anonymity.

Default Thanks for a very helpul reply

Thanks for a very helpul and informative reply, Kyzo
I must admit I don't have a real need for anonymity either - I simply value privacy (= security?). I think I may have found a service to interest me.

My pleasure! Please post back if the Anonymizer works well for you as your post has me wanting to try anonymous browsing again. I actually liked anonymous browsing (even if I had little real need for it). Perhaps it's the James Bond in me..

Regards and Good Luck! Kyuzo

Cool

Hello Kyuzo,

I perhaps ought to mention, as a avid fan of OpenSource philosophy, that I am rather traitorously looking at a paid service (Neomailbox Services) because it uses a VPN, which seems to, at this early stage of my research, be the most secure way to go. I'll certainly post the results here in the hope of helping someone else (maybe you, disguised as 007).

Before you go spending any money, have you read the article linked in this post?

Well, your efforts maybe in vain as the emphasis here, stated very, very frequently, is on non-paid services . As someone who has been lurking awhile, you should be knowing that but then ....

Hotspot Shield is a free VPN, but they have monthly bandwidth limits.
