Editors' review

Invisible Browsing has a nicely designed user interface that makes it incredibly easy to change your IP address. Unfortunately, doing so slows your browsing speed down to a halt.

The program's interface was made to accommodate all user levels. It comes with two modes: Automatic and Manual. The Automatic mode displays prominent buttons for changing your IP and restoring it. You can view your real IP address, and with a single click of your mouse, you can change and view the new address in the same window. But as soon as we started browsing with our new IP, we found our browsing speed incredibly slow. On top of that, the language reflected the new IP's location. So, a German IP address brought up Google in German. Switching to Manual mode also only took the click of our mouse, and we like that it offered a 1-2-3-step guide to show you what to input and where, but you will need to be familiar with using proxies. The Manual mode also lets you pick the location of the new IP, which alleviates the language problem. However, our browsing speed still became very slow when we activated the new IP.

The program includes a built-in user guide, as well as links to the publisher's Web site for an FAQ. The FAQ did address our slow browsing speed, but even after switching proxies like it told us to do, we saw no change in our speed. You only have three days to try out the program, and you'll probably use every bit of it to do the same amount of browsing you'd typically get done in two. We suggest you look for a program that doesn't impact your surfing speed so much.

    "Disappointed--Just did not work for me"

    July 05, 2011   |   By wburychka

    Version: Invisible Browsing 7.3

    Pros

    Free trial

    Cons

    Does not work

    Summary

    Easy install, but... Automatic mode: Initially does not bring up IP address, just displays a failed URL. Checking IP address confirms it is not working. Click Change IP and the "busy" indicator continues forever.
    Manual mode: Seems to work with manual selection of a country and proxy from the list, but then most web pages will not load and others require multiple reloads. Maybe that is because of the proxy I selected, but finding the right one could take days or weeks.

    "absolutely can't get it to work"

    June 06, 2010   |   By knucklepunt

    Version: Invisible Browsing 7.3

    Pros

    nice large buttoned interface

    Cons

    unnecessarily complicated. sparse help file. no real tutorial.

    Summary

    maybe it's just me, but I absolutely could not get IB 7.3 to work. At all.

    I spent a good bit of time going through the limited help file in an effort to configure it properly, but no dice. Switching from automatic to manual didn't help either.

    Either it didn't configure properly or there is so much connection lag to the proxy servers that it continuously timed out.

    Either way it rendered my internet connection completely useless. Way overly complicated to use, IMO.

    January 23, 2010   |   By bullcross

    Version: Invisible Browsing 7.3

    Pros

    very easy to use and it really does the job

    Cons

    can't say I have found anything I don't like.

    Summary

    Most software will affect the performance/speed of your PC. Worth sacrificing a little for safety in my opinion
