Anonymous Web Browsing

Anonymous web browsing is browsing the World Wide Web while hiding the user's IP address and any other personally identifiable information from the websites that one is visiting. There are many ways of accomplishing anonymous web browsing. There are proxies that are usable, as well as programs such as TOR (The Onion Router), which sends information through a net of routers to hide the destination of information. However, anonymous web browsing is not completely anonymous, as there can still be traffic analysis and other programs used to counter things such as TOR and proxies.

Famous quotes containing the words browsing, anonymous and/or web:

    I am still a learner, not a teacher, feeding somewhat omnivorously, browsing both stalk and leaves; but I shall perhaps be enabled to speak with more precision and authority by and by,—if philosophy and sentiment are not buried under a multitude of details.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Public opinion, a vulgar, impertinent, anonymous tyrant who deliberately makes life unpleasant for anyone who is not content to be the average man.
    —W.R. (William Ralph)

    However, our fates at least are social. Our courses do not diverge; but as the web of destiny is woven it is fulled, and we are cast more and more into the centre. Men naturally, though feebly, seek this alliance, and their actions faintly foretell it.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
