    "Good Security Is Attainable Without NoTrax Travail."

    June 01, 2007   |   By ClarionAhoy

    Version: NoTrax 1.4.0.13

    Pros

    By utilizing a progessively encrypted and wiped memory-resident cache, this program promises enhanced security and anonymity. By design or structurally, it no doubt delivers on the first, but then only as subject to a host of innate limitations (making it in fact only fit as a secondary browser). Real anonymity demands at least some kind of robust IP disguise.

    Cons

    For me, NoTrax meant trauma galore: in order to achieve a problem-free install, I first needed to update with latest runtime files (ignore the otherwise LoadLibrary; code31 error at your own risk). Whilst surfing, the inevitable system crash was avoided only by keeping the Images option carefully turned off (apparently some sort of memory-overload defect caused by excessive data transfer upon inadvertently linking to larger sites like this one; as flagged by Heidi spiel that encryption is helpful in the event of PC crash?) The Favourites function seems to contain a flaw, and apart from inflicting a kernel32.dll invalid page fault along the way, assorted page retrieval, page misloading and access violation errors were constant companions. A free 10-day trial, indeed ...

    As well, the free, faster and more stable OffByOne equivalent (similarly no ActiveX or JavaScript, automatic memory-space wipe and no hard disk storage but for Favourites, and so forth) proffers a score of extra functions, including cookie management and Referrer-Header/system identification control. Otherwise, the smorgasbord of features, including numerous selectable security options, now seen as standard in free and better-known browsers, leave NoTrax to my ken, comparatively speaking, spastically impoverished.

    In lieu of foregoing I cannot but view two earlier user conclusions, conspicuously pat and laudatory, with reluctant suspicion. The Editors generously grant three stars: were it free, and but for the existence of the similar but better OffByOne or an abundant availability of other superb, option-laden browsers, I would probably grant it similar: paying good cash only to import trouble, or for a beta parading as finished product, simply refuses to fly for me though: one star.

    "If security matters to you this should be your browser of choice."

    April 28, 2003

    Version: NoTrax 1.3

    Summary

    Like many other consultants / professionals I spend a lot of time working at clients sites. I like to leave the premises in the knowledge that no unecessary information is left behind me when using the clients computers. (such as accessing bank accounts, other subsciption sites etc) The answer to my prayers has been answered with the release if this excellent package. I run it from my USB thumbdrive wherever I go, whether it's my friends laptop, a coffee shop or a client's pc. If you care about your privacy while on line and to keep online nasties at bay (spyware and all that) this is your product. Definitely worth a try.
