Anonymous SurfingI came across an interesting website discussing about anonymous surfing. It seemed that there’s plenty of data that can be collected once your PC is online. Trust me – I have two web statistics software and I can collect a lot of data from web surfers visiting my websites.

However, I consider these ‘data collectors’ rather basic – I didn’t pay a cent for it, so it has pretty basic functions. But I do get info on where do visitors come from, which country, which city, what language, what web browsers they use and of course what keyword they used to search in all any search engines.

These data are important! It helps to determine what sort of extra functions to incorporate into your website to cater the needs of your visitors. But what interest me was there was in fact some people who are ‘shielded’ behind a curtain. I can’t collect any data from them – all I get was anonymous. I ran a check on Google and it revealed to me that you can in fact surf the Internet anonymously. How?

It’s pretty simple – just setup your own proxy server and configure your browser to point to the web proxy. Just do a simple search on the Internet and you will find various web proxies. Always choose a reliable and trusted one.

I’ve not used this function before. But I hell love to try it out one day – sometimes I just don’t want people snooping around my details when I visit certain sites (if you get what I mean).
