I found it some weeks ago, and tryed it out. Works as it should, but i just have a thing or two, when "security" or "stealth" programs want to install, some "No need" software when installing it. But if the ratings from CNN, PC World and The wall Street is right, it must be a nice little handy tool i think.

But if it isnt, please let me know ^^

Greetings! I just checked out the website and it says:

"1. Privacy Policy

We believe strongly in providing you notice of how we collect and use data, including personally identifiable information, from the Site. Therefore, we have adopted a Privacy Policy, linked from the bottom of each page of this Site, to which you should refer to fully understand how we collect and use information … "

Except there is no link anywhere that I can find to their privacy policy. Personally, I don't like the idea of this service collecting data on me. Ok, I know just about everything does these days, but still …. Plus beyond the first page and the page containing the terms of use, there is no other information supplied. I think I will stick to Geswall for internet virtualisation, and if for some reason I am looking for anonymity (haven't had the need yet), Firefox now offers the option of opening private browsing sessions (see drop-down tools menu).

Anyway, thanks for the info. I'm sure a lot of folks will be checking it out!

Hi-diddly-ho, Ozzie must go … See you round, dotTechies!

Im pretty sure those private browsing sessions arent anonymous. For anonymity you could use the proxilla for foxy proxy plugins.

My advice is: NEVER INSTALL HOTSPOTSHIELD.

Otherwise, wether you are using it or not, you'll see your browser opening without any previous advice and directing you to ad sites.

Try JonDo for firefox. If you want fast speeds you can buy the premium version for only $10.00. It is very annonymous.

It's open source the non paid version can be slow, but the paid version is darn near perfect.

You can even get the portable to install on your USB drive to take with you when on the road.

Vidimo Se!

Lols. How can you be "very" annonymous? You are either annonymous or you aren't LaughLaughLaugh.

You want to be careful with proxies. While proxies hide your information from the websites you visit, some proxies themselves are collecting information about you. Sometimes the proxies are collecting more information than the website you are visiting.
