Want to anonymize your Web browsing the easy way? With PCMesh Anonymous Web Surfing, your browser passes all its communications through so-called anonymous proxy servers. That way, the sites you're surfing don't see your real address. PCMesh Anonymous Web Surfing handles the technical nitty-gritty for you. It finds and connects to servers and can even automatically change proxies every five minutes. It supports the most popular alternative browsers, including Firefox and Opera. Novices only need to click a couple buttons, though savvier users can experiment with the program settings--by supplying proxy lists, for example, or setting parameters for filtering proxies. The straightforward interface isn't very attractive, and the five-day trial is stingy, but PCMesh Anonymous Web Surfing is so easy to use, neither of those problems seems especially serious. It's a good choice for the ultracautious. Remember: just because you're paranoid, that doesn't mean they're not watching you.
From PC Mesh:
PC Mesh Anonymous Web Surfing is an Internet utility to let users surf the Web anonymously by masking their IP address. Version 5.5 adds a list of proxy websites refreshed.
IP address is the unique identification number of any computer connected to the Internet and is detectable by any website that the user is visiting.
IP address contains information about the geographic location of the user and her Internet service provider.
PCMesh Anonymous Web Surfing masks user IP address by redirecting the outgoing Web traffic through free public proxy servers. As a result the user can surf the Web using the proxy server's IP address.
One-click proxy configuration
Change of proxy server every X minutes (user defined)
Fast proxy verification (normally 200 proxies per minute)
Proxy list import and export
PCMesh Anonymous Web Surfing is designed for novice as well as experienced users.
Where to begin? The simple interface has a text bundle of proxies, with no indication what country or location proxies are stored. Many of the proxies are down, and logining into any website is a hassle. It doesn't work.
Overpriced, not anywhere worth $39.95. Looks more like a tool a hacker would use.
You would be better off, using a web based proxy since you can't login into any web sites with this tool. Software design looks rushed and clumsy.
