Editors' Review

+
An Internet Explorer-based Web browser aimed at letting users surf the Web anonymously, this download unfortunately fails to deliver well even on its main promise. Like other identity-cloaking services, it relies on connections to proxy servers to keep remote Web sites from knowing exactly who's browsing. However, we found many of the built-in proxies simply didn't work, while users can't add new ones. Nor does the program have the ability to check server availability and connection speed. Its tabbed browsing feature does work well, although this is now a standard option even in IE itself. The built-in RSS reader gave us error messages, and even the pop-up blocker seemed a bit substandard in our tests. No help file in English is provided. Given the rich feature set of other modern browsers, we would have a hard time recommending this buggy alternative to anyone.

"Does Exactly NOTHING"

July 16, 2007  |  By SoftGeeek

 |  Version: ANObrowse 1.0.3

Cons

Can't get it to work - the software says "you are anonymous", but my IP is visible to webpages as if I were using IE.

Useless.

"It Works"

July 14, 2007  |  By Brainfog456

 |  Version: ANObrowse 1.0.3

Pros

It works.

Just quit any program your running when you install it.

Click proxify after its installed.

And click out of or click no to any spyware that comes up.

Cons

Lot's of spyware.

You do need a good anti-virus program.

And on some websites it cuts the top part off.

"Making fool"

April 18, 2007  |  By abhishek pareek

 |  Version: ANObrowse 1.0.3

Pros

User can surf anonymously using public proxies

Cons

In detail, it is stated as FREE product but from the 2nd website you will visit it will ask for the payment. These guys are making us FOOL. I found advertisement over every webpage I visited shown by them. I also think they are trying to get and send my personal details to their server. Horrible product.

"Make sure you have good anti virus!!!!!"

December 24, 2005  |  By Maggot74

 |  Version: ANObrowse 1.0.3

Pros

Probably does exactly what it says on the tin

Cons

My McAfee Anti Virus deleted a number of Trojans from the .exe file as it was installing, even though it didn't find them on an intial scan. Caveat emptor - buyer beware! (yeah I know it's freeware!)

"Filled with trojans and spyware"

September 07, 2005  |  By Shyaporn

 |  Version: ANObrowse 1.0.3

Pros

The idea's good. And it's the only one here on Download.com that's free. And privacy SHOULD be free.

Cons

Perhaps it's not the software itself, but whatever it uses for it's proxies, it just kept downloading a steady stream of viruses; trojan programs, spyware, and so forth. If I hadn't had my McAfee up and running my computer would be spammed into the next decade by now.

"Anonymous...yeah right!"

June 14, 2005  |  By smwvc

 |  Version: ANObrowse 1.0.3

Pros

It was free and a good idea..

Doesn't work. Selected a bunch of different proxies, Googled "What's My Ip" and every one of them knew, even though on the status bar it said..."You are now surfing anonymously!" Yeah Right!
