CNET Editors' review
This is one of the rare Web privacy applications that works right off the bat, but it suffers from a slow proxy server. Mask Surf Lite's very simple interface is primarily a tray icon pull-down menu, and the option menu is just seven checkboxes and three pull-downs. Intermediate to advanced users will spend little time setting options, but novices would do well to watch the helpful tutorial.
Mask Surf Lite's privacy approach is just setting Internet Explorer to use a proxy. You can quickly add Firefox and some instant messengers to also use the app. The program includes quick options to clean your cache, cookies, addresses, history, and forms with just a click on the main pull-down menu. As with any proxy server, your speeds will vary wildly based on load and server capability. Our tests found surfing speed acceptable, if sluggish at times.
Advanced users may wish for greater flexibility choosing options and the ability to choose a specific country for the proxy. Novice users will like the simplicity of install and operation. All users will find the 15-day demo more than adequate to test Mask Surf Lite.
Mask Surf Lite is an Internet activity anonymizing tool which effectively protects your privacy by hiding or masking you identity while surfing the Web. It also lets you clean any browser traces on your computer so that your Internet activity stays anonymous on the inside as well. Mask Surf Lite boasts an easy to use interface, which lets anyone familiar with any Internet browser make their Internet activity anonymous in a couple of mouse clicks. Version 2.2.3 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
