Editors' review

ThankSoft's Mask Surf Everything hides your IP and identity by routing your online activity through a network of proxy servers. It's based on "The Onion Router" (TOR) network, so-called because of its resemblance to an onion's layers -- only each TOR layer adds additional anonymity, making it impossible to trace activity back to you.

Pros

Quick and easy setup: The setup wizard can add Mask Surf Everything to Windows Firewall's exceptions list, but be sure to check any other firewalls you use for potential issues.

Not slow: Mask Surf Everything didn't slow our browsing beyond our broadband connection's usual variation.

Private: It sometimes seems like you need a tool like Mask Surf Everything just to keep the pests and crooks at bay, but whatever your reason, this tool can help protect your privacy online.

Cons

No 64-bit: Mask Surf Everything doesn't support 64-bit Windows. A 64-bit version is promised "in the future."

No Chrome: Mask Surf Everything's browser list displayed Internet Explorer, and we successfully added Firefox to the list, but we couldn't add Chrome.

Pricetag: Mask Surf Everything costs $60, a significant chunk of change, though you can try it free for 15 days.

Bottom Line

TOR inevitably slows your browsing speed by routing signals through multiple proxy layers, but any lag from Mask Surf Everything wasn't enough to give up on its protection. Cheaper (though often trickier) TOR tools are available. Mask Surf Everything offers convenience for those who want to surf anonymously but don't really care how it's done.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Mask Surf Everything 1.0.
