This application promises anonymity while you surf the Web, although using it is a chore. Armed with a state-of-the-art interface complete with great graphics and music, Get Anonymous Personal Edition hunts and analyzes proxy servers upon command. During testing, its search-and-proxy analysis was painstakingly slow, making its 10-minute trial increments unreasonable. At any rate, it did mask our IP after several attempts. After the program locates a serviceable proxy, you click the browser to be connected to a site other than your original home page. Browsing is problematic as pages mysteriously open while you visit specific sites. Some cleaning features for system and Internet Explorer tracks are thrown in but hardly make up for this utility's shortcomings. Even though this software masks your IP, it's easy to find an anonymity tool that won't hijack your browser.
