Nameless Surfing

Masked strangers


Anonymous surfing is exactly what the terms suggests. You go online without revealing any of the personal or technical information on your computer. It's done by having a special computer -- called a proxy server -- screening you from the websites you are contacting. Your computer contacts only the proxy server, which contacts the website for you. The website, in turn, sees only your proxy server and not you. In addition to hiding your IP.

From Ask Bob Rankin:
Anonymous Web Surfing
