Each time we search to buy products online, visit chat rooms, log on to
use our internet banking, visit our favourite news or financial sites –
all this information is logged and stored as our personal surfing
history. This is done via our IP address.

This information about all the websites we have visited can be used to
construct a profile of our browsing habits and this information is
valuable to website owners, marketers or even the authorities. These
records are all stored and held by our Internet Service Providers (ISP's)
and can be easily bought and sold to those interested parties.

To protect us from these people, we can surf the internet anonymously
either via web based free anonymous surfing tools or by downloading
anonymous surfing software. By using either method, no records of our
surfing history can be traced back to our IP address.

So which is the better option?

Web based anonymous surfing tools are known as web anonymizers. They are
usually free to use and the process is relatively simple. You go directly
to the anonymizer website and type in the URL of the website you want to
visit. The anonymizer website then redirects you to the site destination,
which sees the anonymizer website server as the IP address and not your
own IP identity.

A free web based anonymizer is definitely a convenient option if you’re
an occasional surfer...however if you surf the internet more than two
hours every day, going backwards and forwards to the anonymizer website
can be quite tedious.
The biggest problem however with web based anonymizers is that most of
them are not enabled with SSL (Secure Socket Layer) or SSH (Secure SHell)
encryption. In other words, you cannot connect to banking, shopping and
other secure sites which use this technology.

Commercial anonymizers or anonymous surfing software, are systems that
you download and install as a client application. This software manages
all the details of anonymous surfing for you. As soon as your browser is
loaded, our connections are automatically anonymous...and there is no
tedious visiting of an anonymizer website.

The main advantage however is that the best anonymous surfing software
will be enabled with SSL (Secure Socket Layer) or SSH (Secure SHell)
encryption and protect from not only web browsing but from other web
based applications such as email, ICQ, IRC etc…
