Hiding your IP does not make your surfing more private. There are still things like user tracking and browser fingerprinting.

Great post. May be it will be helpful for the mac users.I want to down load the web proxy server.You can also down load free SOCKS proxy,Freegate Software,Tor Proxy Software, UltraSurf,GTunnel and so on from my blog.

[...] This post by Umar Anjum is truly a great resource if you are wondering how to browse the internet privately. This is useful if you share a computer or if you are browsing at a public place like a library. Not that you should be looking up things that are naughty, but for example, if you want to check your online banking statement, you probably want to make really sure that info doesn’t stay out there for anyone to see (I dig this being an overly cautious person myself). Check out this wide range of internet proxies and browse in peace! [...]
