Editors' Review

So the boss is on your back because you spend too much time on eBay during work hours. What to do? This program helps you sneak a discreet peek at your 100 live auctions on company time by "disappearing" browser windows with a hot-key shortcut. Granted, this is no magic trick.

Once online, if you press your series of customizable hot keys, any telltale trail of Web activity is gone from the screen, the task manager, the process list, and the running application list. The only way to bring the browser windows back is to hit the hot-key sequence again. Instant Hidden Internet works with most browsers, and can be adjusted to affect Windows Explorer windows, too.

The app is incredibly low-maintenance, running from a small EXE file that doesnt even make a mark in the Add/Remove Programs tab in the Windows Control Panel.

Potentially useful for employees who don't have cubicle walls to hide their surfing habits from nosy coworkers, possibly silly for others who have the power to simply close a browser window, Instant Hidden Internet is free, no-frills and functional.
