Editors' Review

+

As a way of avoiding spyware and pop-ups, Torpark successfully allows you to surf the Web anonymously, although the publisher warns of possible connection slowdowns.

The self-extracting file installs quickly, and you can run it from your hard drive, or as the publisher suggests, from a jump drive. Torpark adds to your browser's toolbar a few unobtrusive buttons, which allow you to activate/deactivate the tool and configure its privacy settings according to your specifications. The tool effectively restricts pop-ups; blocks surreptitious installations of adware, spyware, and cookies; and hides any traces of your surfing. You can check the Torpark Tools menu while visiting a site and build a list of blocked items for the current page; from the same list box, you may add to a white list any or all of the displayed items.

The publisher cautions that using Torpark may slow your Internet connection speed, particularly if you're using a dial-up, but we noticed no slowdown during our tests. Torpark is free, easy to use, and suitable for all users interested in protecting their privacy while visiting Web sites.

"nice concept but too slow to use"

December 11, 2008  |  By John0038

 |  Version: Torpark 2.9.1.2

Pros

I like the idea of running a separate browser through a remote IP connection,

Cons

but this program is really way to slow to be a practical solution. I have a 5 meg connection and timed a 5 minute single page download.

Summary

don't waste your time, ,keep looking.

"good idea but....."

June 22, 2008  |  By moonthe_sun

 |  Version: Torpark 2.9.1.2

Pros

I like what it could do if it were working the way it should, but it doesn't.

Cons

it is slow, very very slow and hangs. Some sites don't work well or not at all. The paid version would be ok but it is very expensive on a monthly basis. Can't afford that and gas for the car too.

"hmmm works, then dont....."

December 13, 2007  |  By wwarsin

 |  Version: Torpark 2.9.1.2

Pros

This is a very good program to get around proxies that block alot of stuff, it looks nice, you can change your ip.. a few other things that i cant think about

Cons

ITS SLOW, its like being on dial up... And when you first start Torpark sometimes it cannot connect to the circuit and doesnt work, i happens more then half the time i want to use it, like one day it will work just fine, the next it wont then the next it might and so on... Maybe its some settings but i dunno, i would still recommend this as it is quite nice when it works
