An Internet Explorer-based Web browser aimed at letting users surf the Web anonymously, this download unfortunately fails to deliver well even on its main promise. Like other identity-cloaking services, it relies on connections to proxy servers to keep remote Web sites from knowing exactly who's browsing. However, we found many of the built-in proxies simply didn't work, while users can't add new ones. Nor does the program have the ability to check server availability and connection speed. Its tabbed browsing feature does work well, although this is now a standard option even in IE itself. The built-in RSS reader gave us error messages, and even the pop-up blocker seemed a bit substandard in our tests. No help file in English is provided. Given the rich feature set of other modern browsers, we would have a hard time recommending this buggy alternative to anyone.

ANObrowse is the number one browser for secure surfing without providing your true IP address. By using anonymous proxies, it's not longer you who browses the Web - it's the proxy that does so. You indeed never ever visit the website physically. You never ever visit the Web site you see in the browser. Therefore, the Web server you visited through an anonymous proxy wont know nothing about you, including security data like your IP address. Features: Anonymous Web browsing, anonymous RSS news feed reader, file de-/encryption, tabbed browsing, add-server-blocker, hijacker-removal tool, increase online-speed tool.
