Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 22, 2010

Software designed to enable anonymous Web browsing has been around a long time, but it's notoriously complex to use. However, there are more reasons than ever to want to ensure safe and private surfing, like sophisticated hackers and advertisers that track your every click. JonDo, a free anonymizer that uses multiple proxy servers and layered encryption, is the best of its kind yet. It works best with JonDoFox, a Firefox add-in.

JonDo's polite installer asks for permission for just about everything it does, including asking if you want a standard installation or to send the program to a flash drive for portable use. A detailed wizard simplifies what would be complex setup process involving numerous options, and an attractive, well-designed interface helps take a lot of the complexity out of configuring Web browser security features. The JonDoFox add-in integrates seamlessly as a Firefox profile and offers the option to choose it or one of your other Firefox profiles when you start browsing. The hardest part of configuring your system for anonymous Internet surfing is setting up the security software to work with your browser, your antivirus software, and your ISP. JonDo takes pains to make sure your connection and browser work properly, explaining each step as it walks you through the setup. Excellent online and built-in Help resources speak volumes about the JonDo community's expertise and commitment.

JonDo is open-source software; it's free to use, edit, link to, and distribute. It's certified for Windows 7 and is compatible with PortableApps.

Developer's Description

JonDo enables its users to stay anonymous on the internet by giving access to strong anonymisation systems. It hides the users IP address from website operators, network admins, providers, intelligence agencies and even the operators of the accessed anonymisation systems. Each application that should be anonymised has to be configured separately for using JonDo. No registry settings have to be changed, and administration rights are not needed, neither for installation, nor for running the program. The software is open source and free for use. It grants access to both free and commercial anonymisation services.
